Prytania St. Necklace

This design is from 1880 featuring the Nine Muses Streets in New Orleans where I have created art and jewelry for ten years.

It is silhouettes of the houses, showing the architectural vernacular - our beautiful side galleries or curved porches, which allowed for the river breezes to flow.

  • Material - Sterling Silver
  • Dimensions - approximately .75 x 2.5 inches (with adjustable chain)
  • Similar items from the same collection are showcased in other photos

 

 

This section of the Lower Garden District was planned by Barthelemy Lafon who intended it to be a sophisticated area lined with trees, markets and parks.


Being a lover of the classics, he named the streets after the nine muses of Greek Mythology: Calliope, Clio, Erato, Thalia, Melpomene, Terpsichore, Euterpe, Polymnia, and Urania
