Beyond Bling

FullSizeRender 68.jpgA new collection of one-of-a-kind jewelry has been gifted to LACMA by Lois Boardman. A selection of 50 stunning pieces have recently been on view in the exhibition “Beyond Bling: Jewelry From the Lois Boardman Collection.” Showcased jewelry included a lego necklace, an earthenware dish plate necklace, ornate crowns and even a nosepiece. But if viewing these stunning pieces made you yearn to try one on, LACMA created four different Snapchat filters allowing you to see yourself wearing some of the works on view including a crown, glasses and a necklace.
