“Helen Drutt, author and seminal figure in contemporary art jewelry says the high regard is mutual. She says of Berman, “She’s passionate about her artists and the place of jewelry in the world of art. She’s the next generation to carry on all the work that my generation did in order to bring an awareness of this work into the public forum.”

With regard to placement of Drutts’ celebrated collection into Houston’s Museum of Contemporary Art –

“It was important for her to have a museum of fine art house her collection,” Berman says. “She didn’t want it to be viewed in a craft-museum. She wanted the work to be seen by a wider scope of people and in the same vein as fine art, not just as jewelry.”

“When I collect pieces for my personal collection, I think about that too-, how will it be viewed? What story will they tell?”
