MAKE A MAD STATEMENT
Museum of Arts and Design
2 Columbus Circle, New York
Supplement your flea-market treasure-hunting for baubles, beads, and sparkly accessories with a series of stylish jewelry workshops this summer at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD). Running in tandem with "Fashion Jewelry: The Collection of Barbara Berger", opening June 25, these sessions are must-dos for fashionistas-about-town.
Join the silver-haired mavens of the Advanced Style blog for a series of salons, gleaning gems of wisdom from their expansive knowledge of Personal Emblems (starting June 29), Necklaces of Time (July 27), and Beaded Bracelets (August 24). These fashion forward salons are gratis with museum admission and for members.
Spend a Saturday afternoon creating personalized statement pieces with artist Jessica Stroller. Her hands-on Forming Your Style: Wrokshops in Fashion Jewelry explore the endless possibilities for accessorizing with classes like Reconfiguring Rhinestones (June 15), Extreme Epaulettes (July 20), and Revised Ruffs (August 17). Classes cost $65. for the general public and $55. for MAD members. Update your accessory collection and check out MAD's full roster of exhibitions, film series, workshops and more.
