Jewelry Making: Past & Present, a new exhibition at the Museum of Islamic Art, presents a thousand years of jewelry making that maintains a fascinating dialogue between cultures, religions, past and present. Forty-five Israeli jewelers display contemporary wearable art, which corresponds to Islamic jewelry from the museum's collection, and expands the boundaries of traditional jewelry making.
