Candy Wear Brooch And Two Bracelets, 2000

This is a Brooch and Two Bracelets. It was designed by Daniel Jocz. It is dated 2000 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is electroformed, assembled and soldered silver covered in electrostatically applied rayon flocking bonded with adhesive; magnets (bracelet clasps). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This brooch and two bracelets and related pieces from Jocz’s Candyware series (2016-34-49 and 2016-34-51), remind both wearer and viewer that one of the most important aspects of jewelry is enjoying what you wear. These bold forms convey a sense of fun with their simple shapes covered in neon-colored flocking, an unconventional material with a soft, fuzzy texture.

This object was donated by Susan Lewin. It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
