Not Just A Pretty Face - Hedy Lamarr silver screen goddess and inventor. During the WW2 she read a piece that related to radio controlled torpedos and set off down a technical rabbit hole where she, along with the assistance of musician George Antheil developed a system based on radio waves, that would block the trajectory of the intended target, by blocking the signal. The basis of their work was integral to the development of GPS, Bluetooth and Wifi. In isolation, she continued tinkering with various projects and ideas whilst negotiating six marriages.

3” diameter brass and glass fob with hand sewn sequins.
