The Store at MAD, the retail arm of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), is pleased to present RE:FINE Holiday 2023, an in-store shopping event featuring 14 forward-thinking international artists who are redefining the world of fine jewelry. Members of the press and public are invited to a cocktail party on November 16, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. EST, during which many of the featured artists will be present.
“RE:FINE is an opportunity for design enthusiasts to shop a highly curated offering of fine jewelry at varying price points. By including brands like JV Insardi, whose designs carry an impassioned narrative behind their composition, and Ank Jewellery, whose floating pieces are akin to wearable art, we partner with artists who are redefining the modern heirloom,” said Sathya Balakumar, Director of Merchandising. “It’s an opportunity for the MAD community to invest in work that is elevated in design, creative in the use of precious materials and original in form.”
Featured artists whose fine jewelry is new to RE:FINE include: JV Insardi, Maura Green, and Meili Fine Jewelry. JV Insardi jewelry, a both collection of sculptural pieces, is made to capture and accentuate the spectrum of emotions, with each piece fastidiously carved out of the wax by the artist, Jen Insardi, herself. Maura Green’s collection is created to celebrate and protect its wearer, evoking the sentimentality and mood of Victorian jewelry. Meili Fine Jewelry, created by Anna Meili Adelman, is a dynamic display of pillars and emblems that focus on the symbolic nature of jewelry as heirlooms to be cherished and shared.
Returning artists include: Ank Jewellery, Joan Hornig, Lika Behar, Leslie Paige, Margoni, Mateo, Page Sargisson, Petra Class, Sethi Couture, Sweet Pea Jewellery, and Wwake.
RE:FINE is part of New York City Jewelry Week (Nov. 13—19, 2023), an annual citywide celebration that invites a global audience to experience the world of jewelry in New York City and beyond.
