Mixed metal, mini shield necklace rendered in vintage Whiting & Davis mesh. Silver and gold mesh shapes are carved from a vintage purse (circa 1930s-1970s) by opening the mesh links' tiny tines and carefully deconstructing the fabric. Pieces are then woven back together—and the edges framed—with dark gunmetal chain.

Mini Shield Framed Mesh Necklace measures 30" around, the pendant dropping an additional 1.5" in front. Slips on. Handmade in San Francisco and signed with a hand-finished brass signature link at closure.

All mesh is exclusively Whiting & Davis from machines dating to the early/mid 1900s. Certain pieces are one-of-a-kind or very small runs, due to the limited availability of appropriate vintage materials. We constantly search antique dealers, estate sales, and flea markets for damaged, chipped, and torn mesh purses which are deconstructed, cleaned, and transformed into jewelry.
