Jewels by JAR, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, November 20, 2013-March 9, 2014.
Frequently inspired by nature, JAR often draws on rather ordinary subjects, then transforming them into whimsical, unique works of art. Each piece imparts his creative vision and stands to tell a story of its own. The present brooch is no exception: the meticulous micro-pavé, seamless gradations of color and the undulating form of the plant all unite to bring this quintessentially JAR jewel to life. This spectacular brooch is accompanied by a decorative presentation stand, proving that this imaginative jewel is just as striking as an objet d’art as it is when being worn.
