This is a gorgeous example of Margo de Taxco's enamel work in the 1950's.
The design uses the champleve method of enamel work in which hollows are made into a metal surface which are filled with colored enamels and fired.
Each link is joined to the next by a jump ring which allows complete freedom of movement - no pinching. The jump ring and link construction also allows for soft draping around the neck.
No repairs or damages, although one jump ring appears to be a replacement. Tight snap closure.
