Jewels by Jar PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Jewels by Jar free pdf Called "the Faberge of our time" by Diane von Furstenberg, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR, is one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the past thirty years. JAR is known for his use of precious and semi-precious stones resplendent with myriad shades of vibrant color and set in organic shapes: one brooch, for instance, features lifelike petals in subtly differentiated hues, made from a thousand pave sapphires and amethysts. The "New York Times" has described his jewelry as "belligerent, stubborn, audacious, funny, contradictory," while JAR himself has characterized his work as "somewhere between geometry and a bouquet of flowers." This book, featuring nearly 40 pieces from throughout JAR's career, provides a concise, accessible, elegantly designed retrospective of the best of his jewelry creations, and is the only book of its kind on his work available in English.
