One of the items whose artist we wish we could remember because it is such a superb piece of artistry and skill – as well as beauty.
Three strands of unbelievably tiny jet cylinders, interspersed with equally narrow silver heishi, make up a choker of incredible delicacy, and beauty.
The design suggests the maker was award-winning heishi artist Josephine Coriz, but with no mark, and no record, we cannot say for sure.
What is certain, is the refinement of the fabrication, and the sophistication and elegance of the necklace’s design.
Black and silver are a timeless combination that is incomparably chic; the era of art deco, white fox stoles, black satin, and supper clubs, come to mind.
Smooth as satin, the jet beads feel like fabric; the silver heishi are a bit longer than the minuscule jet beads, but still only four centimeters in length.
For all the dazzling chic of this dainty necklace, it will go to the office, to the PTA, everywhere, as well as out for the evening.
A magnificent example of exceptional heishi making, and a remarkably stylish vision.
