Just Beneath Her Surface


So much more than meets the eye here: look closely at the vintage buckle-turned-clasp and you'll see astonishing craftsmanship and detail. Cloisonné enamel in spring's freshest hues of green and peachy-pink shows off stunning decoration below its surface, called basse-taille enamel in which the metal ground has been carved to reveal pattern or detail through the glass-like surface. (We can't get over the striations in each flower petal or the veining of the leaves...truly remarkable.) The buckle clasps three strands of faceted gray-green jasper and Indian brass beads at a length of 17.5" overall.
