Yes, the DMA has a small but fabulous collection. Several years ago
when Jean Stark was here teaching granulation she went to see the
collection. There is an unusual ring that has a granulated "garden"
under the stone (quartz?). Very cool! If you come through Dallas, go
to the museum store and get the book (hopefully it’s still in
print). And yes, it’s part of the permanent collection as far as I
know. BTW, you MUST go to the Legion of Honor to see the Faberge,
Tiffany, Lalique exhibition while in SF. I was there a few weeks ago
(at Revere). Plan to spend at least several hours. Amazing work!
You’ll love the chain class!
