This colorful necklace features vintage bakelite by local jewelry designer Ilene Sirota.
Drawing from her experience as a fine artist, her pieces combine semi-precious stones, glass, carved wood and bone, pottery, handmade paper, fiber and eclectic objects.
Ms. Sirota's collage techniques intertwine textures and colors. Her multicultural adornments connect the past with the present.
