Assamblage Contemporary Jewelry School was founded in October 2010 at the initiative of the Romanian designer David Sandu. In the absence of institutions to specifically target the jewelry learning at a professional level, Assamblage laid the foundation of a new generation of contemporary jewelry designers and authors, rising to international standards.

Located downtown Bucharest, in a very accessible area, Assamblage Contemporary Jewelry School offers complementary modular courses that meet the diverse needs and interests of the students; from introductory courses for those with no previous experience in working with metal and gems, to themed workshops targeting specific jewelry techniques. From practice days in school's workshop to jewelry work tools, Assamblage can support in their endeavor its graduates and other artists who are just starting out their careers.

Over the past seven years, Assamblage Contemporary Jewelry School held over 150
training sessions, thus becoming a foundation and a strong reference point in the development of design jewelry in Romania. With over 500 alumni, Assamblage helped to create a cohesive community of artists who have achieved and accumulated technical and conceptual notions for their assertion as individual designers.
