This beaded necklace featuring 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 31 inch adjustable necklace is made of metallic beads and twisted cotton and features two handmade tassels, evocative of the many tassels seen throughout the Museum. Wear the necklace long, or double it up for a layered effect. This design was crafted exclusively for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
