This is my contribution to the lovely display of copper jewelry on this site. It is not signed but well designed and well made. I love how the classical Ram's Head design (at least that's what it resembles to me) is reinterpreted here in a modernist, even minimalistic way.

Update: I have since spotted the same necklace online with matching earrings signed Matisse on clips. The only difference was that the swag segments between the ram's heads were enameled in white on the other necklace to resemble sheep fleece. My necklace does not appear to have ever been enameled, and since we know that Matisse /Renoir sometimes made the same design with and without enamel (see Valentino's "Espana" post on this site for example), I figure that would make this necklace a Renoir piece.
