8 jewelry events in March

Looks like spring will come quicker than usually in Montreal. Isn’t it fun? Means that very soon the jewelry won’t be hidden under hundred layers of coats and scarves and will shine in all its awesomness. As always, I am here with the list of the monthly jewelry events for March.

1) (4 mar) White Night at the Jewelry School of Montreal

Location: l’École de joaillerie de Montréal, 416 boul. de Maisonneuve O.

March 4, 20.30 – 2.00

Did you ever want to see how the backstage of the jewelry craft looks like? The Jewelry School of Montreal (l’École de joaillerie de Montréal) will open its doors during the 14th edition of Nuit blanche of the festival MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE. During the event the guests will visit the school and its worksops, as well, as the exhibition of the recent creations of the students. You can also buy the creation you like and thus help to finance the final exhibition of the graduates.

All night long the students will be showing their craft in action and creating rings, passing through all the stages from the raw material to polishing the ready piece.

2) (23 sep-9 apr) Fréquence bleu

Location: Bonsecours Market, 350 St-Paul Street East, Old Montreal

Until April 9.

Fréquence bleu (Blue Spectrum) is an immersion in the colour blue and its many shades, as seen through clothing and accessories made from 1900 to the present day. From sky blue to navy blue, the colour’s wide spectrum never ceases to inspire fashion designers the world over, to the delight of generation after generation.

This exhibition features pieces by international designers such as Christian Dior, Balmain and Comme des garçons, as well as pieces by young graduates and current students of Montreal’s fashion, textile, jewellery and leather-working schools.
