Eel Bibb Necklace on Wire Collar


Eel Bibb Necklace on Wire Collar

18K Gold-plated Brass
Matte Antique Finish
From Sargasso hangs four entwined eels, each of which is 3/4 of an inch, curving toward cleavage. The necklace is secured with a 17-inch single, gold wire chain.

Undulating, curvy, gold wiggles—these eels are a stunning mashup of Egyptian and delicately loopy Belle Epoque. The woman, or man, who wears a piece from the eel collection has an unpredictable power. In typical Orchard Jewelry style, the eel becomes beautiful, not scary; magical, not menacing.

The Sargasso is four eels connected to each other’s sinuous bodies. Both embellish the neckline beautifully. The model for these eels arrived in the garden after Hurricane Sandy in 2013, each one from the Sargasso Sea.
