Don't tread on ME!

Technically, this is a YSL Haute Couture belt, but it is a tiny belt. The previous owner wore the belt as a necklace, this is why we have the piece shown on a necklace display. The construction of this piece is truly amazing. In the center of the belt is a metal chain that runs the length of the piece. Strung on the chain are hundreds of concave metal pieces with scalloped edges that create a scale effect. The articulation of this piece is fantastic, it moves like liquid gold.

YSL Haute Couture metal belt/necklace, c.1970's. Size 28" SOLD
