Catalogue Description:
A long, attenuated open wirework necklace with an asymmetrical arrangement of three triangular pendants. An elongated, ovoid neck piece composed of two members attach at proper left and right via small curved wires, with the proper right wire forming the clasp. From the bottom center of the neckpiece is suspended a triangle set with a green-and-beige-mottled cabouchon stone that suspends from its bottom corners a smaller triangle with a pink cabouchon stone at proper right and a larger triangle with a blue cabouchon stone at proper left. Each element, including the two members of the neck piece, pivots.
