Frank Gehry: Fish, Torque, Orchid

Frank Gehry JewelryThe Frank Gehry Collection: Tiffany & Co.

Though his fluid buildings have wowed the world of architecture, when Frank Gehry interprets his signature forms and materials for the human body, the results are remarkably unoriginal.

This assesment is contradicted by the promotional materials:

The Gehry Collection is based on Gehry’s lifelong obsession with art. Just as he has built profoundly brilliant works of architecture set in a myriad of landscapes, so does he turn to the most intimate of all the arts, jewelry design, creating provocative new forms scaled perfectly to the body.*
