Following his desire for self-expression, the Parisian designer conceived a new kind of jewelry, far away from Place Vendome’s classicism. Enter the magical world of Elie Top in which he invents and interprets in his own way a sophisticated galaxy made of spheres, stars and signs of the zodiac, in which woman shines at the center in playful pieces.

The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) champions contemporary makers across creative fields and presents the work of artists, designers, and artisans who apply the highest level of ingenuity and skill. Since the Museum’s founding in 1956 by philanthropist Aileen Osborn Webb, MAD has celebrated all facets of making and the creative processes by which materials are transformed, from traditional techniques to cutting-edge technologies.
Today, the Museum’s curatorial program builds upon a rich history of exhibitions that emphasize a cross-disciplinary approach to art and design and reveals the workmanship behind the objects and environments that shape our everyday lives. MAD provides an international platform for practitioners who are influencing the direction of cultural production and driving twenty-first-century innovation and fosters a participatory setting for visitors to have direct encounters with skilled making and compelling works of art and design.
Proceeds from MAD About Jewelry will benefit participating artists and support the museum’s educational programs. For more information, visit https://madmuseum.org
