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 necklace 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 and fastening with a lobster clasp, the necklace may also be slipped on over the head.
