MARALRAPP

Modern Vintage Mesh Works, metal mesh + sterling silver

Oakland, California

Announcement    Metal mesh reclaimed from vintage purses, hand-linked with sterling silver chain to create contemporary, wearable pieces of jewelry. Fragments of a bygone era, the resulting works are rich with history yet decidedly modern.

Many 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 tarnished mesh purses.

All mesh is exclusively Whiting & Davis from machines dating to the early/mid 1900s, the selection ranging from antique, heavily worn patinas—through vintage, slightly softened surfaces—to newer, brightly plated finishes. 1890s-1980s.

Everything in this shop is designed by Maral Rapp and handmade in San Francisco and Oakland, California.

Modern Vintage Mesh Works - modern jewelry from vintage metal mesh purses.

Always drawn to metal mesh, my appreciation for the artistry and history of iconic, Deco Era mesh purses eventually moved me to incorporate them into my daily life. Today I render these fabulous old bags in a more contemporary, accessible way—as modern, wearable jewelry.

More than just great style, each piece carries its own intimate little piece of history; a previously-loved, hand-rubbed fragment of someone's daily life... Whose fingers opened and closed this purse? Where did she go on a Saturday night in 1920, 1940, 1960? What shade of lipstick lived in this bag? After the sensuous, draping fluidity of the metal mesh, it's the history and personal stories in this vintage material that we love the most.
