In 2009, Cynthia was invited to design a bespoke, licensed collection of iconic Dead jewelry via Grateful Dead Productions (GDP) to feature in the museum store for an upcoming Grateful Dead exhibition and beyond. As a lover of all music, from Rock and Roll to Jazz to Classical to Bluegrass to World, Gale accepted the challenge and created her first Grateful Dead, sterling silver jewelry collection featuring the band’s iconic artwork.
For the 40th Anniversary of Cornell ’77, Cynthia designed two, limited edition sterling silver pieces to commemorate this unique Grateful Dead concert. Each limited edition design arrives with an authentic, Cornell ’77 curatorial card.
The sterling silver Steal Your Face Belt Buckle features the 13-Point Lightning Bolt, embellished with an endless Celtic knot design, representing the infinite influence of the Dead’s distinctive music.
The sterling silver Steal Your Face Charm Catcher is on a 24”-26” adjustable S/S Chain and holds three iconic Dead charms: the Dancing Bear; 13-Point Lightning Bolt backed with mother-of-pearl; and the Terrapin.
The Edition Limit is 577, representing the memorable May concert date of Cornell ’77. Each piece is stamped on the back with Cornell ’77 and will be individually numbered 1/577, 2/577, 3/577, up to the 577 piece Edition Limit!
Cynthia Gale New York is now accepting orders on both Grateful Dead, Cornell ’77 Limited Edition designs. Exquisite handwork and finishing in sterling silver takes time. Limited Edition pieces will be produced steadily until the 577 piece Edition Limit is reached with the first shipments.
