Catalogue Note

In 1969, Mapplethorpe began making and selling jewelry.  The handmade necklaces (designed to be worn as chokers) offered here, with macramé knots and various talisman-like charms, were worn by both Mapplethorpe and Croland.  At the time of this writing, it is believed that these are the first pieces of Mapplethorpe jewelry to be offered at auction.
