Multistrand Choker, from Wrinkle Jewelry collection, 2012

This is a Multistrand Choker. It was designed by Noa Zilberman.

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Noa Zilberman as part of Beauty—Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial.

It is dated 2012. Its medium is gold-plated brass.

This gold necklace wraps the neck, creating delicate circles of wrinkles. Zilberman crafted the Wrinkles jewelry collection during her graduate studies at Israel’s Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. The pieces follow the grooves that settle naturally around the eyes, mouth, brow, and cleavage—lines that Zilberman studied in her own body after the birth of her first son.
