Studio Else & Paul Pendant ‘Abstract Sun’
DETAIL
Studio Else & Paul Pendant ‘Abstract Sun’
Hadelund, Norway
Size: Length: 2 ½ ins (5 cm)
Width: 2 5/16 ins (6 cm)
Manufactured: c. 1970
Ref: 1006
Price: £325  
Else Bernstein Hughes (1938 – 2002) and Paul C. Hughes (1934 – 1981) met in 1959 at the Central School of Arts & Crafts in London.  Later they established their own workshop ‘Studio Else & Paul’ in Hadelund, Nr Oslo, Norway.  They became pioneers in the studio silver movement in Norway.  
This pendant is a rare example of the 1970's ‘new’ look, using the technique called ‘lost-wax’ or ‘à cire perdue’ method.  The jewellery is first modelled in wax, then a mould of plaster is cast around it.  The wax melts when heated – liquid silver is poured into the mould while it rotates.
  When removed from the mould, the piece is hand-finished and a layer of 999 pure silver is added for the final finish and this will not tarnish.  The work of Else & Paul is now avidly sought after, although in their early years, they were considered too advant garde for most people.
 
Pieces of their work is limited as, after the death of Paul in 1981, Else concentrated on sculpting and no more jewellery was produced.

Georg Jensen Sterling Brooch with Labrodites
‘Tree of Life’ Design with safety clasp
Design No. 159
Size: 2 ins (4.5 cm) Diameter
Manufactured: 1909 - 14
Ref: 475
Price: £950
 
Designed by Georg Jensen c. 1909, this is a beautiful example of Georg Jensen’s earliest designs and is an original piece, bearing the early GI mark.  The labrodite stones have a remarkable play of colour known as ‘labradorescence’ and the aggregate layers refract the light as iridescent flashes.  The agate was discovered in Labradore Canada, and has long been known to the native Inuit people for the mystical and protective properties.  (www.crystalvaults.com ).

Floral Brooch designed by Georg Jensen with blue Lapis.
Design No: 66
Size: 2 cm (.75”)  x 3 cm (1.2”)
Date of Manufacture: 1904-1908
Price: £950
  Stock Ref. No. 948
 
This iconic Georg Jensen Brooch was made between 1904 and 1908.  Georg Jensen set up his first workshop in Copenhagen in 1904, so this brooch was not only designed by Georg Jensen but will most probably have actually been made by him.  At the beginning of his workshop, he only had one 14 year old apprentice, Henry Pilstrup, to help him with his work.
 
This is an exciting piece of Georg Jensen memorabilia as he will probably have actually handled this piece of jewellery.  Georg Jensen’s magic in his design and the beautiful deep blue of the lapis, bring the brooch to life.  A ‘must have’ for any devotee of Georg Jensen’s work.
