Baubles, Bangles, and Beads: American Jewelry from Yale University, 1700–2005
This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of objects from the Yale University Art Gallery’s collections of gold, silver, and costume jewelry, including mourning rings, miniatures, knee buckles, bracelets, and other notable and unusual items. From a necklace of gold beads created by a colonial goldsmith to insignia from the Society of the Cincinnati and the Masons, and from 1930s Bakelite bracelets to studio jewelry from some of the country’s contemporary artisans, Baubles, Bangles, and Beads reveals how and why Americans have adorned and accessorized themselves for over two hundred years.
