tabito: antique scissor necklace


or make 4 interest-free payments of $34.50 AUD fortnightly with More info


Archivists of overlooked beauty, tabito restore lost artefacts of daily life from a forgotten past. Pieces in this collection have been meticulously assembled from vintage and antique machinery parts, jewellery findings, semi-precious stones and industrial ephemera collected in Japan and throughout Europe, to bring you a little piece of history to wear and treasure. Each piece is unique, thoughtfully composed and constructed in Tabito’s Belgium workshop. 

The sculptural beauty of a humble pair of tailors' scissors is the inspiration for this striking pendant. A traditional Japanese technique using green tea gives the antique handle its beautiful black patina, while clockwork parts worked into the long brass chain add intriguing detail. Fastens with a brass lobster clasp.
