Material Memories: Jewelry from the Collection of Historic New England
Historic New England’s Associate Curator Laura Johnson will provide an overview of their extensive jewelry collection during the Newport Antiques Show loan exhibit lecture. Johnson will explore how New Englanders have used jewelry to tell the stories of their lives and will discuss exhibit highlights such as the plastic “pop” beads favored by folk art historian Nina Fletcher Little and an enameled butterfly brooch by London jewelers Child & Child.
