19th century, Japan
If chic didn’t come from the French then it would have from the Japanese. Don’t forget too that while all Jewels’ work may be chic in a fashion sense it transcends fashion trends as the objects have soul.
This toggle had a lifetime of use, worn and touched so the patina acquired is like glass. The leather is a gorgeous, soft and subtly opalescent cream we hand stitched in our Marrakech studio. Jewels’ design and the materials- pure perfection.
Toggle: 5.75″ long; 5/8″ wide; 1/2″ deep
Necklace length: 22″ (Note: the leather cord holds its own shape and therefore does hang as low as the full 22″.)
