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.

Free Artscape Activities!

Join visiting artist Brice Garrett in a FREE hands-on workshop and installation at the Baltimore Jewelry Center on Saturday, July 20.

Throughout the day, visitors will create large scale, plaster “gemstone” pendants through the act of stamping, mold-making, and casting. Participants can drop in anytime between 12 – 6p and can make as many plaster gemstones as they would like; all gemstones will become part of an evolving community installation that will be displayed at the Baltimore Jewelry Center.

This is suitable for kids as young as 7 (accompanied with an adult).
