    Here is a typical Machine Age piece: a 'brickwork' chrome and blue enamel necklace by German designer Jakob Bengel and dating from the early 1930's (marked 'Garantie' on the clasp). I got it on a flea market for a few euros and I can't stop admiring it from the day I got it! I have two other necklaces by Bengel, but this one is the most amazing. It is also in great condition for its age. So classy!

      Thanks for 'loving' and for your comment! ;) Indeed, it is chunky. To give you some idea, the pendant alone measures 3".

      Famous french designer Andrée Putman had a Bengel necklace, which she wore all time! La grande classe!
      Thought of it as soon I saw your's.

      Thanks for your very kind comments! I was on vacation and I've just read them. André Putman is a great source of inspiration to me, thanks for mentioning her... Yes, Val, I love wearing this necklace! Makes me feel special. ;)
