LOVE LETTERS IN METAL:
JEWELRY BY SVETOZAR AND RUTH RADAKOVICH

May 14–August 7, 2016

Curated by Jean Radakovich

Svetozar (Toza) and Ruth Radakovich created some of the most exquisite, unique, and recognizable pieces of mid century American jewelry. Their designs have left a lasting impression on the modern design and studio jewelry movement. Radakovich jewelry is exceptionally rare, whereas many studio jewelers created a design and produced hundreds of examples, the Radakoviches were known for creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces which took inordinate amounts of time to perfect and complete. This exhibition is a narrative of their interwoven personal and professional lives—a long journey across continents and wars during which they found ways to speak words of love to each other through their art.
