tabito: art deco cigar cutter necklace



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. 

This intriguing silver toned steel piece will generate many a curious conversation - its striking sculptural pendant is formed with a detachable vintage steel cigar cutter with art deco styling, still functional but perfectly safe when closed. Incorporating silver parts from an antique pocket watch, the unisex necklace may be slipped on over the head.
