Bob Winston, Silver Cloak Fastener with Black Star Tourmaline, 1950, silver and black star tourmaline, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Bob and Janedare Winston, 2002.61.2
Bob Winston designed this cloak fastener so that the tourmaline would evoke a star glowing in the night sky. The silver dots and curving line suggest a constellation, while the stony texture of the connecting elements resembles the pocked surface of a meteorite.
