I went over to Danny's parents house for Thanksgiving...amidst preparing for the feast, his mother gave me this AMAZING piece of jewelry. She is from Colombia and apparently bought this piece in the 1960s. The style of this necklace was originated by the great Paco Rabanne. "Rabanne started his career in fashion by creating jewelry for Givenchy, Dior, and Balenciaga. He started his own fashion house in 1966" pioneering the concept of using unconventional materials such as metal, paper and plastic for garments and jewelry, each piece having a very structural silhouette.
I am so lucky to have such a piece!
