Obama Mandela Necklace - Looking Over the Rainbow
Brightly colored images of former South African President and Nobel Laureate Nelson Mandela and US President Barack Obama, whose election was widely celebrated in Africa, are set in special thick foil, which is decorated with delicate impressions. Links are silver plate. For such an eyepopping piece, it is remarkably lightweight…almost like wearing nothing at all.
Artists Beverley Price, founder of this collective, was originally commissioned by the Nobel Center to do a piece featuring Mandela after he won the Nobel Peace Prize.
