We educate and inspire new and established artists, as well as promote metalsmithing and art jewelry to the general public through exhibitions, community and educational outreach.


The Baltimore Jewelry Center is an educational nonprofit building a vibrant creative community for the study and practice of metalsmithing and art jewelry.


We envision Baltimore reconnected to its rich history of metalsmithing and jewelry. New generations of art jewelers will preserve and evolve the field through practice and education.
