and it's a jewel of a book. diminutive-but with exquisitely detailed photography, JEWELS by JAR is part of the Met's exhibition of Jewels by the legendary jeweler-artist Joel A. Rosenthal, JAR
photographed on the midnight laid pages-JAR's Jewels are untethered from their worldly owners-to float as they should- in space-with space, infinitely as beautiful as their ancestors-the Camellia, the Butterfly.
the JEWELS are kept in a little black book a diminutive eight inches square & it is all fitted into a pink JAR slipcase.
in Harper's Bazaar September 2013 issue-the equally as exquisite Stella Tennant wears her JAR willow leaved earrings-
I'll never have my own JAR Jewel-but I've got the book-and that's really quite something.
all the images-other than my own-top two, and the photograph of Stella Tennant are from the book- JAR JEWELS, printed for the Exhibition of the same name at the Met.
