Midcentury Modernist Zig Zag Necklace by Ed Weiner
Almost too cool to be old school! This modernist piece was designed by Ed Weiner in midcentury New York City, just blocks from our shop, in Greenwich Village! He was a fine silversmith who is renowned as an artist who brought the post- Bauhaus and Abstract Expressionist movements together in his jewelry designs. Down to the details, even the findings are especially designed. Each zig zag panel is connected by unique half rings with spheres on each end that secure it to the next and ensures that the necklace drapes perfectly. It is unsigned, through we are certain of its make. It was purchased from the Jim and Henny Backus Estate. As a choker, the necklace measures 14 inches long, and about 1/2 inch wide.
