Designer Beth Ward has worked with hill-tribe families of northern Thailand, helping them develop their ability to execute large-scale silver jewelry production for private label distribution. These relationships have resulted in large-scale collections and, more importantly, a sustainable economy for the village.
This experience exemplifies Beth Ward Studios core philosophy: to create designs via relationships where everyone is successful, from the artists to the factory workers.
The Pearl Necklace reflects the Museum's effort to document and display jewelry and accessories from the modern era, as represented in past exhibitions such as Modern Handmade Jewelry.
