Happy New Year!

New York City is sparkling with welcome for the new year. An exhibition at the MET showcases the artwork of the famously private and eccentric jeweler JAR who ironically uses more than glass in his one-of-a-kind pieces. Sapphires, fire opals, rubies, amethyst, diamonds, gold …. it is a treasure trove of precious stones that have caused some controversy for the curators but which nevertheless contribute to an extraordinary display. It is gaudy and gorgeous at the same time – a bit like new year’s eve celebrations can be – and who can resist a little sparkle? Not even the freezing cold could keep me from venturing up to our roof for the flashing colours welcoming in 2014. This year is going to be a beauty – let’s see what we can do with it…!
