Alien Adornment: 50 Years of Star Trek Jewelry


Maggie Schpak, longtime Star Trek prop jewelry maker, will be making a rare appearance to discuss behind-the-scenes process and stories of her life creating character adornment for the Star Trek series and movies, beginning in the 1960s.

In a first-time public speaking engagement, Hollywood prop jeweler Maggie Schpak will transport to Arts At the Armory, Somerville, MA to present her insights, artistry, and behind-the-scenes stories from a career designing and making for Star Trek. After fifty years of creating prop jewelry magic, the Queen of Makers will talk about her methods, never-seen original sketches, prototypes, problem solving experiences and share insider studio photographs. From the design and making of Spock’s Kolinahr necklace to Worf’s and Dax’s ornate wedding ensembles to the classic IDIC pin, this is a unique sneak peak into a world loved by millions of Star Trek fans and movie-goers world-wide.
