Story

Designers of modernist jewelry took on the philosophy of rejecting all that had come before them. Often seeing themselves as sculptors in their own right, these jewelers sought to create one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art.

This modernist (1976) piece utilizes “ancient” materials of gold, lapis lazuli and bone in its creation. Heavy in weight and solid in construction, the combination of these materials and their individual attributes result in a strong image with textural impact. Similar in configuration to a pendulum, a tapered and reeded element of 18k yellow gold suspends a 10 mm lapis lazuli cabochon set in a pierced gold bezel. Extending in three directions from the lapis are a trio of gold rectangles inset with bone flush with the edges of the bezels. Visually arresting and of the most painstaking workmanship - it is a marvel of construction.
