Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was famous for her pearls. Simple and elegant, these lustrous vintage Japanese-made pearl beads have been hand-knotted and finished with a gold plated box clasp embellished with an orphaned 1960s earring.
This necklace measures 63.5 cm along the neck edge.
These beautiful pearl beads were sourced from old warehouse stock and were probably made in the 1950s-60s.
Sustainably made in my Melbourne workshop from vintage and repurposed materials which may show signs of age in minor wear and a deepened patina. I think that is what gives them so much charm.
