I have fallen hopelessly in love with the jewelry of Alexander Calder. He made about 1,800 pieces (all by himself, no help) for galleries, friends and family and if you had a piece you were definitely in the artistic 'in crowd'--think Peggy Guggenheim. I came across the amazing book on his jewelry, or tome, at my favorite place on earth: The Mechanics Institute Library. I can go there and think and it is two blocks from my studio and is a treasure.
