or make 4 interest-free payments of $19.50 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. 

A piece which speaks to the inner architect or vintage stationery lover, this delicate pendant was once a useful case for compass leads. Suspended from a simple brass chain studded with vintage clock parts and a cultured pearl, the lid slides off the case, revealing space for a tiny sentimental treasure. Slips on overhead or may be fastened with the spring clasp.
