One-of-a kind jewelry created by the late Fred H. Coxen, former exhibitions producer at Museum of Modern Art. Coxen sourced the beads personally in his travels, and strung by his own hand for personal recreation. "Fanciful Fish" includes a sweet hand-cast fish focal bead that appears to be from Africa, with alternating ceramic blue, carved bone, and rough-cut black glass, and rustic brass accent beads. All brass elements have been left as is to retain natural patina. Some minor chipping in black beads, but no cracks. At 23" long, this necklace is suitable for a man or woman. Easy hook & loop closure.

  • Limited pieces of this special handmade jewelry was donated to Fire Island Animal Welfare Society, thanks to a donor patron who acquired the items from Coxen's estate shortly after his death in 2000. Jewelry comes with no paperwork verifying its provenance, and determination of materials is our best guess only. Buy it because you love it!
