Miami, FL is a place for beach days, Kardashians, Cuban food, and from December fourth through December ninth, luxury jewelry aficionados. The International Contemporary Jewelry Fair is coming to town. Set aboard the Seafair (an event venue on a yacht), docked at the Chopin Plaza, the exhibition will be a display of up to 40 international jewelry designer’s pieces which have been made for art alone, not accessory.
The event has accessible parking, whether valet or self, and a lovely waterfront location. December fourth is the $50 preview for 1200 lucky guests. This one-time price gets you not only the preview, but also one other fair day entry, priority boarding. If the preview pass is out of your jewelry viewing budget, then the $15 day entry passes starting on the 5th are also accessible.
One example of an exhibitor will be Llyn Strong, a decorated jewelry artist. She is praised for her “eye for life." She is considered a contemporary artist, but she also draws upon the past for inspiration. She already has a collection of pieces specifically made for artistic purposes, and not as adornments worn on a person, which makes her an ideal candidate for the fair.
The Seafair boasts the title of only nighttime fair venue in downtown Miami. So even if jewelry isn’t your thing, if you are bored between December fourth and ninth 2012, then The International Contemporary Jewelry Fair is an agreeable alternative to sitting at home watching reruns of Kourtney and Kloe taking your beloved city.
