Ellington Necklace

Catalogue Description:
A long, large asymmetrical necklace composed of a semi-circular wire neck piece and three, teardrop-shaped organic elements of varying size. Each element is set with red, purple and green or yellow oval-shaped, semi-precious cabouchon stones in silver collars, and is framed by conforming flattened wires. The smallest element is soldered to the neckpiece at top proper left, and a second connects to the neck piece at top proper right via a thin, bent wire clasp. The third element is suspended at center from the other two via small silver rings.
