The design for this limited edition necklace by Barbara Bloom was inspired by her exhibition As it were ... So to speak: A Museum Collection in Dialogue with Barbara Bloom at The Jewish Museum.  The necklace features sterling silver reproductions of seven original amulets in the Museum's permanent collection, hand strung on white ribbons with red accent thread.  Both the red thread and amulets are thought to ward off the evil eye.
