Book of the Day: Jewels By JAR
Featuring the pieces of one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the past several decades, this book highlighting the work of Joseph A. Rosenthal, or JAR, is a stunning compilation and the perfect Valentines Day gift for any jewelry lover.
Published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art to coincide with its Jewels by JAR exhibition (which I am so excited to see while I am in NYC this week) it includes nearly seventy of his creations made using gemstones, pearls and natural materials, and highlights his inspired use of vibrant color and organic shapes. His work will, no doubt, leave you spellbound – for Xmas, my mom bought me the incredible JAR Paris I and JAR Paris II, for which the artist also serves as author, and I treasure them. XXJKE
