Cannetille, the process of intricately wrapping wires to create ornate shapes, was popularized in jewelry in the 19th century. This stunningly detailed floral bib features gilt, an ancient metalworking technique that hammers gold to another type of metal. Every petal and leaf of this lush botanical piece was hand-wrapped in the Art Deco era, making this a truly one-of-a-kind find!
