Brooching It Diplomatically: A Tribute to Madeleine Albright
Helen W. Drutt English, an authority on modern and contemporary crafts, celebrated Albright’s diplomatic strategy for sending political messages by inviting over sixty jewelry artists from around the world to create pins that would send messages of their own. The results were shown in an exhibition that opened in Philadelphia, toured Europe, and was hosted by the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in 1999. Liberty’s clock-eyes are arranged so that the wearer, looking down, and the visitor, looking across, can both tell the right time.
