The centennial of Seaman Schepps's jewelry begins, appropriately, at the Museum of Arts & Design in New York on September 8. Born to immigrant parents on the Lower East Side, Schepps—who made pieces for the likes of Doris Duke and the Rockefellers—is considered a uniquely American stylist in his use of wood, shell, and irregularly shaped stones. The exhibition features drawings, molds, and 150 examples of his work, some on loan from private clients. At 40 W. 53rd St.; 212-956-3535.
