Trained first as a sculptor and ceramicist, the late Georg Jensen founded his famous silver company in 1904, only after he discovered his special aptitude for also turning the metal into wearable art. More than a century later, "Georg Jensen Jewelry," a show at New York's Bard Graduate Center, is highlighting his jewelry and hollowware, which have become part of design history. The works will span his career as a fine artist as well as his heyday as a silversmith. Objects include his 1899 belt buckle depicting Adam and Eve and brooches from the early 1900's. Others are by Jensen's staff of designers: A 1969 necklace is by Steffen Andersen. July 14–October 16; 212-501-3000; bgc.bard.edu.
