Jewels by JAR book

Waaaah!  Where is the time going?  What was supposed to be a week off has turned into a week of work – at the drafting table and in the practice room.  But I’m not complaining, really.  I feel fortunate to have the time to do what I love to do.  Being able to make a living at it is the icing on the cake!

Speaking of people who have spent a lifetime doing what they are passionate about, if you happen to be in New York City, you MUST get yourself to the Metropolitan Museum of Art of see the Jewels by JAR exhibit.  Three-hundred, ninety-five glorious baubles are on display in one elegant room.  You’ll probably never see so many rubies, sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, opals, and other precious stones together in one place again.  And it’s not just the staggering wealth of the collection that is impressive, the designs (mostly variations on elements found in nature) show breathtaking vision, elegance, wit – not to mention techniques unrivaled in the business.  This is one man who has devoted his life to his passion…and it shows!
