Winged Sautoir Necklace
Droplets of vintage gold metal mesh with solid sterling silver rolo chain. Wear the necklace as-is, or let the tails trail down into your shirt for a sexy, short version. Chain is oxidized to a dark contrasting black and hand-linked around the mesh elements, all carved from classic Whiting & Davis purses (circa 1940-1980s.) Links are soldered/welded around each mesh form, chain-to-chain, drawing a continuous line throughout the piece.
Winged Sautoir Necklace measures 20” around and drops 9”. Handmade in the Oakland Hills, San Francisco Bay Area and signed with a brass logo link at the lobster clasp closure.
