First, He Designed Needlepoint

Once upon a time Joel Arthur Rosenthal went to Paris where he opened a needlepoint shop with his Swiss partner.   He designed and painted needlepoint canvases, and was known for experimenting with "unusually colored yarns."

He also worked in film and later on starting designing jewelry which is what he is known for today.

Starting November 20 (today), the Metropolitan Museum will host an exhibit of 400 pieces of JAR jewelry.   If you happen to be in The City then, please stop by and enjoy a fellow stitcher's other work.  Many thanks to Needleprint for bringing JAR's early history to my attention (and for showing off some of his exquisite jewelry).

If you ever stitched anything by JAR, please let me know.  I am dying to see his needlepoint designs.
