Called "the Fabergé of our time" by Diane von Furstenberg, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR, is one of the most acclaimed jewellery designers of the past thirty years. JAR is known for his use of precious and semi-precious stones resplendent with myriad shades of vibrant colour and set in organic shapes: one brooch, for instance, features lifelike petals in subtly differentiated hues, made from a thousand pavé sapphires and amethysts. The New York Times has described his jewellery as "belligerent, stubborn, audacious, funny, contradictory", while JAR himself has characterised his work as "somewhere between geometry and a bouquet of flowers". This book, featuring nearly 70 pieces from throughout JAR's career, provides a concise, accessible, elegantly designed retrospective of the best of his jewellery creations, and is the only book of its kind on his work available in English.

Using exceptional precious and semi-precious stones mounted in rare and unusual metals, JAR jewels are classics with a twinkle. Galconda diamonds, Kashmir sapphires, natural pearls, Indian emeralds, Burma rubies as well as demantoid garnets, pink sapphires and spinels are regularly used in his creations. Rosenthal's demand for perfection in the production of each piece is so high that only 60 to 70 jewels are made each year. All of them are unique - never duplicated. In this book you will discover 400 JAR creations, photographed using Rosenthal's personal vision via the photographer's special technique. For everyone even remotely interested in jewellery, this is a book you have to own. The release of this book will coincide with the exhibition The Jewels of JAR Paris commencing on November 2, 2002 at Somerset House, London.

Praise for Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day "Causey doesn't miss a beat in this wonderful, wacky celebration of Southern eccentricity."--Publisher's Weekly, starred review "It's about time women had an Amazon to look up to... Bobbie Faye is a hurricane-force heroine who makes this novel the perfect adventure yarn."-- The Tampa Tribune "If you like Janet Evanovich, if you're looking for a lot of unlikely action (when is the last time someone you know escaped a burning boat by lassoing an oil rig?), or if you're simply having a bad day, go out and find Bobbie Faye. She's an outrageous hoot."--The New Orleans Times-Picayune "Bobbie Faye, Southern, eloquent, kick-ass, highly accomplished and just plain nuts, is a magnet for the most colorful collection of riff-raff and the most sexually compelling males south of Minneapolis. Throw in an unlikely MacGuffin and you've got a very, (very, very, very) entertaining book."--Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of Dating Dead Men It had been a whole freaking month since Bobbie Faye Sumrall had blown up anything or been shot at, and that was almost a new record. Then her diva cousin Francesca waltzed up to where she manned the gun counter in Ce Ce's Cajun Outfitter and Feng Shui Emporium and everything just went to hell. Fast. Francesca's mom has disappeared with exceptionally valuable diamonds swiped from Francesca's dad (difficult marriage) so of course Francesca broadcast to every insane psycho that Bobbie Faye could recover the ersatz family jewels. Accused of one man's murder, Bobbie Faye's on the run as an unintentional Pied Piper to a rabid band of thieves. She has to find the diamonds, figure out the motives of the dead sexy FBI agent who's pressing her for more than just the jewels, all while racing to side-step her steamy (and steamed) detective ex-boyfriend before the deadline arrives and the diamonds disappear. Bobbie Faye Sumrall is back in fighting form in this second installment of crazy, wacky adventure through Cajun country.
