American Jewelry: The Susan Grant Lewin Collection

Collector and author Susan Grant Lewin recently donated over two dozen pieces of jewelry by artists and makers working in the United States. These are featured in the installation American Jewelry: The Susan Grant Lewin Collection at the Yale University Art Gallery, on view through fall 2022. The collection underscores Lewin’s commitment to promoting and preserving important advancements in the studio-jewelry field and offers a glimpse into the relationships she forged with many of the jewelers.
