Margaret De Patta’s rutilated-quartz-and-onyx ring from 1954 exhibits the

machine-tooled intersect. As Museum of Arts and Design curator Ursula Ilse-Neuman puts it, “It’s very unusual for a jeweler 

to be that interested in constructivism and the Bauhaus movement.”  Photo 1 of 3 in Imagine if Moholy-Nagy Made Jewelry
