Vintage, 1930s to 1980s

Modernist Statement Necklace Bronze & Malachite

Vintage studio made Modernist statement necklace with long articulated pendant reminiscent of Calder designs. Made of Bronze or Brass sheet, hand hammered for texture. The top portion is enhanced by a single round Malachite cabochon. The necklace is light and comfortable to wear in spite of its larger dimensions. 

The pendant measures 6 1/2" long at the center and is 2 1/4" at the widest point. Because it is articulated , it moves when you move and it is not overpowering. A great necklace to showcase when wearing a simple top in the Summer or a sweater in the winter.

Pendant comes with the original hand made neck ring, which is 15 1/2" long. If you prefer a chain or cord, it is easy to move the pendant.

It is very well made and likely to be one of a kind. Date is estimated to be the 1960's. There are no maker's mark.
