FRAME sets the stage for SCHMUCK like a splendid decoration and can be experienced together only at Internationale Handwerksmesse and «Handwerk & Design», the most important fair for contemporary jewellery and craft in Europe during the Munich Jewellery Week. A source of inspiration for everyone who loves the finest jewellery, ceramics, and textiles
Finally, there is a confident opening perspective! The German state government's decision will allow trade fairs again. This has given us the green light to start planning with the next edition of FRAME and implement the new guidelines for organizing the Internationale Handwerksmesse and «Handwerk & Design» in Munich so that connoisseurs of contemporary jewellery and art objects can look forward to a successful and safe exhibition experience.

From 6 - 10 July 2022, the Munich Trade Fair will present the finest craftsmanship and first-class contemporary arts and crafts again. With a groundbreaking success, FRAME will form - with its prestigious galleries - a framework around the most important show of contemporary author's jewellery SCHMUCK.
This inspiring merger of arts, craft and design enjoys international renown, presents exceptional jewellery artists from all over the world and transforms Munich into an international mecca of the jewellery scene. Once again, we expect a high quality of connoisseurs of contemporary jewellery and artistic objects.
