        underlies great art, whether it is visual

        or written, and that is the ability to
        distinguish patterns out of chaos.”

        useful coats and scarves into fashion extravaganzas with the clever use
        of repeating designs. Jewelers transfix us with gold, silver, and precious

                                      connections, and spin a web that draws
                                       you deep into the artist’s imagination.
