Best of Boston

2002 Best Jewelry, Artisan

Mobilia Gallery

Artists, critics, and collectors habitually rejoice at Mobilia openings, and they don’t just come for the dumplings and drinks. Libby and Jo Anne Cooper exhibit and sell the creations of some of the world’s leading jewelry artists—and often invite the artists to talk about their work. From the knitted metal fantasies of Arline Fisch to the flocked brooches of Dan Jocz, every piece is one of a kind. Mobilia’s artist-made jewelry is often a better buy than name-brand designer baubles, with prices starting lower than the cost of a good dinner.
