Carmen Beckmann Mexican silver Necklace ~ sterling beads with wirework overlay

on Nov 27, 2017 in archived

Classically elegant Carmen Beckmann silver bead necklace, this Mexican sterling piece from the 1960s combines two sizes of repousse beads. The smaller ones are smooth and glow with warm patina while the bigger are dark with oxidation and embellished with swirls of sterling wirework. I am very partial to bead necklaces of this kind and the specific choker by Beckmann is an integral part of my jewelry box as well…


Size/Weight: 16 3/8″ (wearable; total length is 16 5/8″); diameter of the big beads is 9/16″; 67.7 grams

Hallmarks / Date:¬†maker’s signature as shown as well as “STERLING MEXICO”; 1960s

Condition: excellent vintage with patina to die for, a dream to wear, with no damage or repairs except for a couple of very faint impressions in the smaller beads Рnot readily noticeable nor visually offensive



SOLD – Thank you!
