Laura Anderson Barbata: Choker Necklace with Tassels

This gold choker necklace featuring four handmade tassels comes from the Brooklyn, New York studio of Laura Anderson Barbata. Born in Mexico City and based in New York, Laura Anderson Barbata was an Artist-in-Residence at the Gardner in 2016. During her residency, Barbata explored her passion for fabrics and textiles, producing a series of dresses, skirts, scarves, and necklaces inspired by the elaborate patterns seen on the walls of the Raphael Room and her project, Intervention: Raphael Red. 

The choker is made of gold metal and four handmade tassels, evocative of the many tassels seen throughout the Museum. The necklace clasps at the back to ensure security during wear. This design was crafted exclusively for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Materials: gold metal
Made in Brooklyn, New York exclusively for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
