World Wide Webb: “David Webb: Society’s Jeweler” at Norton Museum of Art

Though inspired by historical motifs from China, India, Greece, and Mexico, his jewelry was as quintessentially American as Jacqueline Kennedy, who wore it at the White House. “David Webb: Society’s Jeweler,” appearing at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida, through April 13, is his first retrospective. Encompassing necklaces, bracelets, and brooches as well as preparatory drawings and magazine spreads, the exhibition takes place in a series of salons by Peter Pennoyer Architects and Katie Ridder, the husband-wife firms that collaborated on the interior of David Webb’s New York boutique —above which craftsmen continue to produce pieces for sale.
