ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum (ILJM) is the first museum devoted to the art of jewelry in Greece and one of the three of its kind in the world. The ILJM is a nonprofit cultural organization certified by the Greek Ministries of Finance and Culture in 1993 and opened to the public in December of 1994. The Museum acts as an international center for jewelry and decorative crafts, with an emphasis on silver and goldsmithing as well as contemporary studio jewelry.
The first Jewelry Artist In Residence Program to run in a museum worldwide is now open to national and international artists all year round. Artist Residents may choose to work in the Metalsmithing Studio (ZEM) or the Jewelry Crafts Studio (ZEDET) both located on the Museum premises.
Applications are now open for Hephaistos Summer School Program 2020! www.jss.gr
