Like a fishing net pulled from the sea, the mesh Yasuhide Drape Necklace is made from hundreds of handmade brass clasps. Each chain is artfully woven and arranged by hand to drape gracefully around the neck. Reinventing ancient braiding techniques into brass forms, artist Yasuhide Ono has created a delicate neckpiece that’s as weightless as it is beautiful.
Each piece comes in an indigo handmade pouch for safekeeping and gift-giving.
