David Webb, a Southern-bred jewelry designer who managed to infiltrate elite enclaves in the Sixties and Seventies, is the subject of a retrospective at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Fla., through April 13.
Located across the water from the winter stomping ground of several of his patrons, the venue, as well as the exhibit’s subtitle “Society’s Jeweler,” befits Webb’s social access, which resulted in a remarkably prolific career cut short by his death in 1975 at age 50. But more than high society, Webb’s work acted as a barometer for a grander social context, according to exhibition curator Donald Albrecht.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
