A Jewel Made in Greece at MAD in NY November 20-23

November 13, 2019

NEW YORK – A Jewel Made in Greece, powered by Enterprise Greece, returns to New York City with a jewelry exhibition at the Museum of Arts & Design (MAD), 2 Columbus Circle in Manhattan, November 20-23.

The exhibition will be held at the 7th floor of the Museum and offers an opportunity to feel the fresh wave of creativity and design from Greece in the heart of New York City.

The exhibition is an official New York City Jewelry Week event.

A Jewel Made in Greece (AJMIG) is a flexible and elegant platform which engages designers/producers of contemporary art jewelry by developing a creative dialogue between the culture of art and the history of Greek jewelry.

Mary Samoli, jewelry designer and founder of the platform, told TNH about the event and the importance of supporting the work of Greek artists and jewelry designers. Reaching a wider American audience is a goal of the event and for all the participants whose unique, handmade jewelry emphasizes the best of Greece and its timeless, enduring tradition in jewelry. Samoli noted that early man decorated himself before he dressed himself and Greece has 6,000 years of jewelry history and that legacy continues today.

The MAD exhibition continues AJMIG’s dynamic, international efforts which included the Who’s Next September edition this year at Porte des Versailles Paris with designers Mary Gaitani, Vasso Galati, K.AND., Katerina Andrigiannaki, Maria Kaprili, Beatrice Handmade Jewelry, and Mary Samoli participating, and marking AJIMG’s second time at the international fashion trade show.

Enterprise Greece is the official agency of the Greek State, under the supervision of the Ministry of Economy and Development, to promote investment in Greece, exports from Greece, and make Greece more attractive as an international business partner.
