She led the publication of Silver of the Americas, 1600–2000 (MFA, Boston, 2007), and co-curated Artistic Luxury: Fabergé – Tiffany – Lalique, (Cleveland Museum of Art, 2008) featuring these legendary firms in an international context. Following her move to New York, she produced the major survey exhibition and catalogue Crafting Modernism: Mid-century American Art and Design (Museum of Arts and Design, 2011), and What Would Mrs. Webb Do? A Founder’s Vision (MAD, 2014), an exhibition on the role of advocacy and philanthropy in American craft. At the Museum of the City of New York, she co-curated Gilded New York: Design, Fashion & Society(MCNY, 2013-17).  New York Silver, Then & Now brought contemporary artists and designers in dialogue with historic silver (Museum of the City of New York, June 2017-May 2018).  Her exhibition on jewelry designer Betty Cooke opens at the Walters Art Museum in autumn, 2020.
