An former Spanish damascene sword pin has been gracefully transformed into an eye-catching necklace.
Damascene is a technique of inlaying gold and silver on etched and oxidized steel to produce beautiful decorative designs.
It has come to be known as a trademark artform of Toledo, Spain.
And interesting -- it's quite a popular artform in Japan also, where it is referred to as Amita, so named after the Amita Damascene Manufacturing Company, Kyoto, Japan.
Classic good looks, fantastic history.
