Published in Penny Morrill’s latest book on Margot de Taxco’s enamel work, the so called “Curling Lines” necklace is one of her most loved designs and definitely a piece that epitomizes her understanding of femininity and elegance. Deeply sculpted repousse links that bring to mind feathers dotted with perfect silver beads, lead to a gorgeous central piece where the silver twists and twirls like waves in the sea. Craftsmanship of the highest level, attention to detail and perfect finishing are all present here – as is always the case with Margot jewelry. A stunning necklace, impervious to fashion whims – isn’t that what makes a classic?
