Revisiting the “layered chain” look that inspired the original Chain Gang necklace set, this new collection of chains is a sequel that takes on a bolder character. The longest chain is a series of hexagons long enough to slip around the neck and terminates into a three-dimensional matchbox tassel embellished with scrollwork and faceted, elongated beads dangling as fringe. The middle length chain marries tubular peyote and chevron chain to create a repeated pattern decorated with laser-cut ornamentation. The short chain is a bejeweled tube and terminates with end caps and a clasp featuring a faceted square stone with ornamental ties.
