A stunning necklace that pays homage to historical jewelry values while questioning them at the same time. The focal point of this necklace is a series of postage stamps featuring Emma Albani, a renowned Canadian opera singer from the 19th century. The use of stamps as a central focus instead of traditional gemstones adds a unique and thought-provoking element to the design.

Part of the 'Cancelled Icons' series, this necklace is a testament to the artist's exploration of currency and material use as they relate to aesthetic value, religion, geography, and politics. The use of Albani's image on the stamps adds a layer of historical significance and cultural importance to the piece.

The necklace is expertly crafted with attention to detail, using high-quality materials that are both beautiful and durable. The red color of the necklace adds a bold and vibrant touch to the design, making it a statement piece that is sure to draw attention.

Whether you're a collector of unique and thought-provoking jewelry, or simply someone who appreciates the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into creating a beautiful piece, this necklace is a must-have.
