This is one of my absolute favorite pieces! I just love the way it looks on - it’s dynamic and vibrant, yet it’s light and flat. It has playful movement and precarious energy, all rolled into one exciting collar.
I fell in love with this classic pattern last summer in Italy when I came across it ata spectacular villa on Lake Como (Villa Monastero http://www.villamonastero.eu in Varenna). The pattern is called Rhombille tiling, or tumbling blocks, and it appears in floor mosaics as far back as ancient Greece.
