Mid Century Modern Sterling Baroque Pearl Necklace
This ultra artsy handmade necklace is a wonderful example of mid century design. Completely hand crafted, the sterling silver links have an organic, natural quality reminiscent of twisting vines and little twigs. The far ends of the chain are comprised of circular links that gradually increase in size until they meet the center portion of the necklace. Here the links transform into opposing semi-circles each separated by a 6mm baroque pearl. Every link has an obvious hand wrought texture with a beautiful natural patina. I searched high and low for a signature or hallmark of any kind but found none. Nevertheless this necklace was clearly made by a skilled artisan with an excellent sense of design. The overall length is approximately 16-1/2" and the nature of the simple hook closure allows you to temporarily shorten the length to suit your taste or outfit. This is a totally awesome, easy-to-wear, one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. Somehow both eye-catching and understated!
