highhorse : sakuru necklace


or make 4 interest-free payments of $32.00 AUD fortnightly with More info

A special collaboration between Highhorse and the maker, this charming necklace was made with Japanese glass and brass beads on fine twisted waxed linen. This unique linen cord was made in France by legendary manufacturer Maison Sajou (est. 1847), and though incredibly thin, it has a remarkably high tensile strength relative to its width under pressure. Adorned with a singular curio, it's an understated but enchanting accent for any occasion. The ends are glued to ensure they won't fray and it slips easily over the head without the need for clasps.
