Price (member): $76.50
Fanciful. Flirty. Fun. This playful Vintage Silver Octopus Necklace is inspired by vintage cutlery. The prongs of two forks form her illusory ruffle; a lost-wax casting of the end of a 19th-century spoon shapes her elegantly coifed head. Silver-plated cast brass. Made in the U.S.A. Double chains, 16-18"l. Lobster clasps. Pendant, 2" x 2.25".
