Only one left in stock - comes in black and white faux leather (double sided).

This unique metallic necklace is rooted in rich tradition yet modern in design. It can be worn close to the neck as a curved torque necklace in keeping with current trends, as a bib necklace resting on the upper chest, and even under a shirt collar for an alluring hint of intricate beauty. Very lightweight, comfortable, and show-stopping!

The faux leather has subtle texture that gives it a realistic leather-look and a metallic sheen that is both soft and glamorous. The necklace is double-sided - one side is bronze, the other is gold (two laser-cut pieces are sandwiched together for extra strength) - giving you two necklaces in one! The intricate geometric design is precision-cut by laser, creating a stunning latticework effect.

I reproduced this design by computer, inspired by geometric designs ubiquitous in Islamic art and architecture around the world, particularly the living artisanal tradition of zillij tilework in Morocco. Starting from one center point, the design grows mathematically into circles, squares, and complex stars that interconnect and extend to infinite, representing the unity and interconnectedness of all existence. While these designs are rooted in age-old tradition, the message speaks of universality and transcendence, and the bold, graphic lines are both modern and timeless.

Geometry, metallic torques, and laser-cut leather are major trends right now, and this necklace combines all three with a rich and worldly artistic heritage, creating the perfect balance of tradition and modernity for the sophisticated and eclectic woman.
