Jewelry Sale at the Museum

Jewelry sales are normally reserved for the fashionistas of New York City, ladies hell-bent on getting the best deals on this season’s hottest designs. Many people would agree that those jewelry sales should be reserved for that “in crowd.” Well, the Norton Museum (1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach) does not. From Thursday to Sunday, museum patrons are invited to attend Bijoux!, a contemporary jewelry art sale, to view and purchase beautiful pieces designed by more than 40 international artists. The artists hail from Canada, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States, and other countries, showing their gold, silver, porcelain, and even diamond pieces. Attendees can meet some of the artists during a three-artist panel at 3 p.m. Friday, March 2.

Entry to the jewelry exhibit is free with regular museum admission, which is $12 for adults, $5 for students with valid student ID, and free for museum members and children 12 and under. Norton Museum hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 561-832-5196, or visit norton.org.
