Winged Sautoir Necklace
Droplets of vintage gold metal mesh hand-linked with solid sterling silver chain. Wear the necklace long, or let the tails trail down into your shirt for a sexy, short version. Chain is oxidized to a dark contrasting black and linked around the mesh elements, all carved from classic Whiting & Davis purses (circa 1940s-1970s.) Chain links are soldered/welded around each mesh form, chain-to-chain, drawing a slim, continuous line throughout the piece.
Winged Sautoir Necklace measures 18 inches around, tails dropping 9 inches in front.
