This is a classic modernist set of Antonio designed jewelry. The necklace and bracelet have all the elements that make his work so unique. The "wave" and swiveling disc links combine together to make a sensuous and complex composition. He scaled the size of the links on the pieces to work best with where the jewelry was to be worn (smaller around the neck, larger around the wrist).
