tabito: jade onyx and agate necklace with brass case
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.
Featuring a vintage brass case originally used to store the leg ring for a racing pigeon, this pendant now makes a unique hiding place for a tiny note or keepsake- the base of the case may be gently pulled off by its attached tail. The substantial brass rope chain has vintage pocketwatch parts and beads of jade, onyx and agate worked into its length, and slips on easily overhead.
