NEW YORK — The National Jewelry Institute is hitting double digits. The nonprofit organization is celebrating the occasion by launching a new teaching initiative with Parsons The New School for Design.
“We started NJI 10 years ago to educate people on the art of fine jewelry,” said Judith Price, president. “So, I knew our focus after 10 years would be to really focus and make a mark on education.” The program, titled “The Fine Art of High Jewelry,” will launch in fall 2015 with a weeklong intensive course at Parsons in both New York and Paris. Each day of the program will be broken into two sessions: a morning course taught by a Parsons faculty member, and an afternoon field trip to visit museums, jewelry collections and various ateliers.
