From sisters Marina and Susanna Sent, this Smile Choker is an elegant, colorful accessory that’s handmade from glass. The choker is crafted by a team of all-women glass blowers in Murano, Italy—the historic center of glassblowing—and displays what the Sent Sisters are known for: applying innovation to traditional methods. The Sent Sisters, whose work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout Europe, belong to a family who has worked for generations in Murano producing Venetian glass. The art of Murano glass-blowing was highlighted in MoMA's past exhibition Sculpture in Glass, featuring works by Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst and Jean Arp, designed and executed in glass in the ancient factories of Murano. The sisters continue the long-standing tradition with their jewelry design, adding a contemporary flair to the timeless art form.
