" Art Jewelry Forum is an international, nonprofit organization that actively advocates for the field of contemporary art jewelry and the talented artists who create it. We publish dynamic original content from the field’s most fascinating voices to inform, educate, and encourage critical thinking and intelligent discourse. Our goal is to stimulate the marketplace and increase the knowledge of consumers, artists, curators, and gallerists through organized events and informative articles, interviews, and opinions in our online magazine. We also provide financial support to artists, speakers, and writers in the form of grants and payment for commissioned articles. Above all, our goal is to give visibility and value to contemporary jewelry."
Klimt02 is a website that offers an environment of knowledge, information, debate and exchange within the context of contemporary jewelry. Klimt02 specifically presents the creations that exist within the world of contemporary jewelry. This is our main service and at the same time our reason for being involved in the development of this area.
