This necklace was commissioned by Kaye Pyle, then a board member of Maternity Care
Coalition in Philadelphia. The necklace was auctioned at the MCC’s annual meeting in 2011 to help raise funds for their work.
The components of the necklace include references to museums, city scenes, art and
architecture and people in an afternoon in the City of Light. Singers Edith Piaf and
Jacques Brel, the Tour Eiffel, Metropolitaine, Notre Dame, designer Coco Chanel, a
1937 postcard of the Paris Exposition, a Fleur de Lis, Louboutin shoes, champagne
and wine, the Lady and the Unicorn at the Cluny, and Monet and Berthe Marisot at the Musee d’Orsay were the inspiration for the pieces.
