Spanning nearly 400 years, this illustrated talk and hands-on workshop highlights major styles and materials from costume jewelry to horsehair, Victorian to mid-century Modern, with images of jewelry along with portraits, photographs, and textiles. See and handle pieces of historic jewelry, and view a small pop-up exhibit of CHS’s historic jewelry collection.
