The exquisite Arts and Crafts Jewelry of once-Puritan Boston

This gold and pearl brooch by Josephine Hartwell Shaw (c. 1913) is reproduced from Arts and Crafts Jewelry in Boston, published to accompany the show which opened this weekend at MFA Boston. One of our Staff Favorite Holiday Gift Books of 2018, this scholarly yet beautifully produced volume is the first to tackle the distinctive "Boston Look" that evolved out of the international Arts and Crafts movement of the late nineteenth century. "By the end of the first decade of the new century," Nonie Gadsden writes, "Boston itself had become a hotbed of art jewelry production," citing a 1916 article on handwrought jewelry in America that noted, "Curiously enough, it is in once Puritan Boston that there is now the largest number of artist jewelers."
