Bobby Corica — 'Domestico Necklace II', 2024

$450

A sterling silver necklace handcrafted for your treasured pet, yourself ... or both! Made from 925 Silver, each link is formed, soldered and finished by hand. 

About the Domestico Necklace:

"For too long our beloved animal kin have been forced to wear garish coloured straps around their necks. They have been subject to the tasteless aesthetic of the commonplace pet stores, and forced to look meek when they could look glam and chic. My first iterations of these necklaces were for our dog (Beatrix) and cat (Jemima), and once placed around their necks and weeped with gratitude as I tossed their decimated bright pink collars aside. They are much happier now, they told me themselves. So I ask you this: Do you want your best friend to be happy and stylish? Or do you hate them?" - Bobby Corica.
