This Machine Age necklace has as its centerpiece a row of three arrow-shaped, black Galalith plaques covered with chrome triangle panels. A fourth plaque drops from the trio. Red Galalith cylindrical beads accent the chrome chain links.  This piece reminds me of the work of Jakob Bengel. I had four links removed from this necklace because I bought it for myself, but I saved the pieces for the future owner. Scroll down to see the perfect Bengel earrings to wear with this necklace.
