tabito: vintage brass pencil case 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. 

A charming vintage brass pencil case hangs from this longline pendant. The lid slides off to reveal a secret compartment for precious trinkets, notes or even, for those romantics who still believe in handwriting, an actual pencil! Vintage mother of pearl rosary beads are worked into the fine chain, which slips on easily over the head.
