tabito : vintage retractable pencil pendant


or make 4 interest-free payments of $57.00 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. 

Topped with a vintage rosary part, this beautiful silver pendant conceals a surprising functionality - the ends extend to reveal a retractable pencil casing (which, with the right sized lead, could no doubt write again).

Suspended on a vintage silver necklace, studded with lolite beads and silver pocket watch parts, the pendant may be slipped on overhead or adjusted to a shorter length with the spring clasp.
