Alexander Calder’s jewellery has the same linear yet three-dimensional quality as his famous mobiles, and the parts that comprise each piece are hammered, shaped, and composed in a fashion that echoes the artist’s creation of his sculpture. Calder produced more than 1,500 pieces of jewelry, beginning in 1906 when he adorned his sister’s dolls with copper wire gathered from the streets. “Calder Jewelry” features around 300 bracelets, brooches, necklaces, and rings, all of which are exquisitely reproduced in newly commissioned photographs.
