DesignPrep: From Design to Movement


NYC teens worked alongside master jewelry designers from Van Cleef & Arpels as they try their hand at jewelry design here at Cooper-Hewitt in this exciting hands-on program. The exacting labor of creating a maquette, first in wax and then in pewter, is an important part of the jewelry design process. In this video, the Van Cleef & Arpels creative team works with our teens to create and critique their own jewelry designs.
