Mastery of Design: The Spider Web Necklace, 1970

The Victoria & Albert Museum

This close-fitting necklace by Allen Jane proves that being spooky doesn’t preclude being elegant. It has been decorated with a dense lattice of stems, flowers, foliage, bees and spider's webs in silver-gilt with enamel and cultured pearls.

A concealed opening at the front and a hinge at the back make wearing it a little easier.
