1970s DeLillo Hammered Brass Modernist Breastplate Necklace


Modern and minimal yet exuding Delillo chic and style, this hammered brass breastplate necklace is 18 inches long and with its 5.5" by 2.5" semi circular main element achieves a total length of 20 plus inches. Lovely hammered brass has a textural quality and tone, and the back of the piece shows the high gloss reflectivity of the material when not hammered. SIGNED on the back in plaque. Functional barrel clasp. The modernist and austere nature of this necklace serves in high contrast to the many differing modes and manners this masterful designer works in, From intricate haskell-esque seed bead constructions to luxuriant lariats of gold or opaque milk glass, DeLillo never disappoints.
