In the Museum’s collection is a bronze spiral brooch (Carpathian Basin region, 1200–800 B.C.) made from a single piece of wire, decorated by a row of figure-eight forms that terminates in a spiral. Garment fasteners such as this one were both ornamental and practical, functioning much like today’s safety pin. Our stunning necklace is based on this rare Bronze Age brooch.
