The Store at MAD, the retail arm of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), is pleased to present RE:FINE Holiday 2022, an in-store shopping event featuring 11 forward-thinking international artists who are redefining the world of fine jewelry. Members of the press and select guests are invited to a cocktail launch party on December 1 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. EST, during which many of the featured artists will be present. The general public is welcome to join the shopping event on December 2 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
With jewelry at the core of MAD’s ethos, The Store at MAD curates a rich and diverse offering. The collection is tailored to speak to individuals seeking high design, quality precious materials, atypical gemstones and creative application.
“RE:FINE is an opportunity for design enthusiasts to shop a highly curated offering of fine jewelry, much of which is made by the artists in attendance. By including brands like Wwake, whose designer Wing Yau takes a sustainable approach to her craft, we open our doors to individuals seeking to invest in goods that are intimately made and ethically produced,” said Sathya Balakumar, the Director of Merchandising. “It’s a chance for the MAD community to interact with and invest in fine jewelry artists who are redefining the modern heirloom.”
Featured artists whose fine jewelry is new to the RE:FINE include: Almasika, Ank Jewellery, Mateo New York, Sean Hill, and Wwake. Almasika, designed by Catherine Sarr, has been spotted on former First Lady Michelle Obama, singer-songwriter Alicia Keys, and actress Reese Witherspoon. Ank Jewellery, created by sculptor Ana Ferrari has garnered attention from Taylor Swift, Amber Valletta, and Lilly Singh. Mateo New York by Matthew Harris was most recently featured on Aurora James in the Glamour’s 2022 Women of the Year. Returning standout artists include: Elizabeth Garvin, Joan Hornig, Kika Alvarenga, Lika Behar, Page Sargisson, and Petra Class.
The Museum’s exhibition of jewelry from its permanent collection, Jewelry Stories, will remain open for shoppers to experience. “Fine art jewelry is at the very heart of MAD’s history, permanent collection, and future,” said Tim Rodgers, MAD’s Nanette L. Laitman Director. “Aligning our RE:FINE store event with our exhibition, Jewelry Stories, helps our supporters recognize this fact and encourages them to curate their own jewelry collection made by some of the most acclaimed artists working today.”
The Store event on December 1 will feature live music by RighteousGIRLS, a New York-based duo featuring flutist Gina Izzo whose sound can be described as carefully constructed and beautifully chaotic, and pianist Erika Dohi, who was referred to as “virtuosic” by the New York Times. Refreshments will be served.
