Rafael Canada Modernist Lariat Necklace from the 1970's.
The necklace is made out of brass with an oblong orange 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.
