Laconic yet eye-catching a Carmen Beckmann Mexican silver modernist necklace adorned with bezel-set amethyst cabochons. The stones are set in such a way as to almost completely hide the “seam” where two adjacent links come together and their color is rich and luscious. The links themselves, like elongated pyramids with cut-work, are minimally adorned with a chased and oxidized line and the necklace is perfectly articulated. This is the second in a set of similar pieces I acquired last year – the first one sold some time ago and it’s now time to present its pair…
