    With the utmost clarity and efficacy, Barbara Natoli Witt' unparalleled gift for designing and making art in the form of necklaces is beautifully presented. As author and jewelry expert Lois Sherr Dubin reveals, "The incandescent artistry of Barbara Natoli Witt is strikingly apparent. The profound, almost primal appeal of the necklaces reflects a wholeness that structures her life and art. Barbara uniquely integrate fiber and objects, yet her talent with artifacts is only part of the story. Of equal importance is Barbara's relationship with a group of women who have provided the foundation for her business successes and encouraged her to direct her own career."After graduation hum The Cooper Union in New York City, Natoli Witt settled in the Sari Francisco Bay Area and started teaching art courses. In the 1970's, she discovered an affinity for incorporating beads and artifacts into her woven tapestries, which fueled a lifelong penchant for symbolism, history, and global cultures, and which she continues to integrate today. Whether African, European, or Asian in theme, Natoli Witt's stunning necklaces are exceptional, peerless, and unequivocally original. Her time-less works of art traverse generations of wearers like the artifacts, jewels, and one-of-a-kind objects that constitute. her exquisite necklaces.In the permanent collections of distinguished venues such as the Smithsonian Institution, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum; Museum of Arts and Design in New York City; and Oakland Museum of California, Natoli Witt's necklaces also have a cosmopolitan following and customer base. Clients include Margrit Biever Mondavi, Selwa Roosevelt, Rosemarie Stack, and the late Claire Booth Luc/ and Diana Vreeland. Natoli Witt's approach to designing and selling her work is├╣like her necklaces├╣somewhat unconventional and a departure from the more typical route of marketing through art galleries. She relishes the rapport established through private exhibitions and the more intimate contact it affords, asserting, "... if you are a wearables artist,' then you really need to experience the reality of other people's lives. The more realistic dealings that you have in the world, the more you realize that there is no hypothetical person, no hypothetical lifestyle.'
