Necklace, entitled Icarus, by Rachel Mackie

This necklace, entitled 'Icarus', was made of leather, cane, woven ribbons, silver and wire by the Scottish artist Rachel Mackie in 1985.

The necklace consists of two wings and a circular centrepiece. It was made of beaten and oxidised leather, lashed cane, woven ribbons, wires and beaten silver.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
