Ferrara interlocked metal links formed from rings of solid brass, aluminum or stainless steel, plated or enameled, and polished it to a brilliant finish. It draped like fabric while maintaining the longevity of metal. Ferrara was asked to be the exclusive designer of Whiting and Davis´s ready-to-wear line which was marketed worldwide.
