We've handled dozens and dozens of pieces of brutalist pewter jewellery by Montreal designers Guy Vidal and Robert Larin, and have never come across this particular style before (we purchased it from a Montreal seller). It's a marvellous, eye-catching and very dimensional piece when worn: because of its construction, the chain sits such that the back of the links (which are as beautiful as the fronts) are most visible at the top and the fronts nearer the bottom.
