JAR, Joel A. Rosenthal

I had heard from more than a handful of people about the JAR exhibit.  It just opened at the MET and runs until March 9th. 

It is amazing.  I am so glad we went.  Rosenthal has been making jewelry for over 35 years in Paris under the name JAR.  This is the first retrospective of his work.  There are 395 pieces.  The jewelry surpasses any jewelry I have ever seen.  The details, the colors, the intricacy is jaw dropping. 

We literally went thru the exhibit and looked, ogled and talked about each piece.  Get up to the MET.  One of the most unique exhibits I have seen in a very long time.
