Peggy Choker with Coral Beads and Prasiolite, handmade by Argent Studio in collaboration with Canaan Studio.
The Peggy is inspired by the duality of Peggy Guggenheim, an eccentric heiress who’s heavily involved in Dadaism movement. The choice of coral beads and Prasiolite represents her facade of a carefree, playful and mischievous character while a second choker adorned with turquoise beads and Crystal Quartz represents her true nature of a deep and critical thinker.
About the collaboration
The chokers are inspired by the lives and art of iconic surrealist painters such as Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dalí. The notorious life story of René Crevel and infamous heiress Peggy Guggenheim as figures of the surrealism movement also played a big role in the pieces' design.
