This amazing vintage necklace was designed by jeweler, Patricia Von Musulin. Her pieces are known for their sculptural quality and have been featured in the design collections of Bill Blass, Perry Ellis, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, and Geoffrey Beene. This design is commonly known as the egg necklace and is rarely available on the secondary market. It is 20" long from end to end and has 8 oversized preban elephant ivory beads measuring 45MM long x 32MM in diameter. It has a hook style closure with 2 additional links giving the necklace an optional additional length of 1 1/2" to 2 1/2". A couple of the beads have darkened lines which is original to the material. The necklace has been cleaned, polished, and restrung by Patricia's studio. This design is no longer in production due to the rarity of the material, and would be a premium if commissioned by the artist.
