Necklace, 2010

This is a Necklace. It was designed by Vera Siemund. It is dated 2010 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is enameled steel, steel, silver, sawn, embossed, enamelled, mounted. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Siemund chose dramatized black and white portraits of “divas” of the 1960s that emphasize the manipulations of personas at that time, perhaps opening our eyes to our own acceptance of today’s more sophisticated photoshopped images.

This object was donated by Susan Lewin. It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.

Its dimensions are

H x W x D: 32.5 × 23 × 3.2 cm (12 13/16 × 9 1/16 × 1 1/4 in.)

It has the following markings
