From the 60s, here's a pendant necklace with chain by artisan jeweler, Robert Larin.
He is a very well known Canadian jewelry designer from the 1968 - 1972, based out of Montreal, Quebec.
This piece is very organic in form.
Larin's jewellery was made of pewter, which was cast by the lost wax process and then filed by hand to remove the rough surfaces left by the casting. The piece was then oxidized or plated with silver or gold and then polished.
The pendant itself measures 3 inches in length by 2 3/4 inches at its widest. The chain measures 12 inches on its own. It weighs 1.2 ounces.
A nice addition to your collection of modern jewelry!
