This is my newest and most favorite necklace – at least at the time!
The necklace was designed by a Canadian in the mid-1970’s. I didn’t know anything about Rafael Alfandary but I am glad I stumbled across his work by accident. I guess I never heard about him before because at the time I was not living in Canada, and even if I had been, I might have been a bit too young to appreciate his creations.
Looking at this piece makes me appreciate the simple lines, the craftsmanship, and the materials. The necklace was made of hammered brass and what I believe to be a Murano glass cabochon.
Here is a link to a short biography: http://www.modernsilver.com/Abstractions.htm
I hope you will enjoy seeing this piece as much as I enjoy wearing it.
Thanks for looking:)
