The Van Cleef excibit at the Cooper Hewitt museum in NYC has been extended to July 4. I saw it yesterday, and it's well worth the trip. They have some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

Ooo, thanks for the reminder, Mme. B! I've been meaning to go and postponing it: methinks I'll have to make the trip next week!

I did indeed! The exhibition is lovely - some gorgeous examples of VC&A's early pieces, and it's very nicely arranged. The Cooper-Hewitt is a gorgeous museum - their cafe garden is delightful, so if you go, leave yourself some time for tea. One thing that surprised me and left me sort of depressed was that I was the youngest person there by thirty years (seriously). Don't "young people" go to museums anymore? Buy/have an interest in jewelry? What?

P.S. - They have an interactive iPad thing going on that I thought was a complete waste of time (but, I'm a Luddite and I've always loathed being read to, ever since I was a little girl - it's what motivated me to learn to read!).
