Far Fan FarFan Mexican silver modernist mesh Necklace

on Jul 27, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Necklaces

Bearing the signature of Plateria FarFan which was based in Mexico City, the necklace at hand is the narrower version of this mod mesh design. Far Fan is one of the workshops associated with “chain mail” necklaces of this kind. One can find them in all-silver as here or adorned with turquoise cabs and even in mixed metals with copper and brass woven into the silver. Flexible and generous in length as a choker, this is an easy necklace to wear every day and happily lends itself to “neck mess” combinations as well…
