Thirty Gods of the Nichiren Sect

Ed Wiener was an important New York modernist jeweler who had a store named "Arts and Ends" on West Fifty-fifth Street. The store's proximity to the Museum of Modern Art was perhaps not accidental: Kramer's jewelry was especially responsive to the art of such important modern masters as Alexander Archipenko, Pablo Picasso and Alexander Calder. Kramer claimed, however, that the main influence on his work was jazz, and he often used musical metaphors when speaking of his designs.
