Rafael Canada Modernist Lariat Necklace from the 1970's.
The necklace is made out of brass with a beautiful clear(almost like mother of pearl) glass cabochon. Three kinetic tassels add movement and flair.
Nice hand wrought details by a very collectible jewelry designer Rafael Alfandary.
Rafael created true works of Wearable art. His pieces vary in sizes but always create a statement. These wearable works of art easily transition from Day to Night, dress them up or down. Not for the timid.
