I’m currently editing a long interview I filmed with Maggie Schpak, who made most of the jewelry seen in Star Trek from TMP to ENT, which of course I’ll share here when it’s published.
I’m currently editing in the final bits of footage from the shows as b-roll to go along with what she’s talking about, and there is one object that I can’t find. She is referring to something from the Blackman era of costume design. She thinks it was from TNG, but it might have been DS9, VOY, or ENT.
Here is what she knows:
- a necklace worn by a female actress
- made of hundreds of small hand-hammered metal pieces that look “almost like burnt-up copper chips”
- the necklace with its detail goes all the way around the back of the actress, but you can’t see it because it was covered up by a large wig
Does anybody have any idea what this might be or the episode in which it appears?
