Georg Jensen – Dew Drop Pendant – Design 311C

 

As simple and as beautiful as a dew drop itself, a pure rock crystal framed by a minimal sterling silver setting, allowing the gemstone alone to mesmerise and charm in this stunning pendant. Created to hang from the Dew Drop neck ring (available separately), it is a masterpiece of Scandinavian design that enhances the wearer’s own natural beauty rather than overwhelms it.

Groundbreaking and uncompromising, Swedish born Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe was a true innovator in the world of jewellery design. Her love of nature coupled with her fascination with the actual mechanics of the pieces – she adored clasps and fastenings that were so often relegated to the back – lead to her creating some of Georg Jensen’s most iconic collections. Her work continues to be admired and loved to this day.

The pendant is expertly crafted from sterling silver and rock crystal.

Designer - Torun (Vivianna Torun Bulow-Hube 1927 - 2004)

Vivianna Torun Bulow-Hube, know as Torun was born on December 4, 1927 in Malmo, Sweden. Her father was director of town planning in Malmo and her mother was a sculptor. Torun was the youngest of four children. All four children pursued artistic careers but it was Torun who became the most famous, as the first woman silversmith in the world to gain international recognition.

Torun studied at Konstfack, the School of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, beginning in 1945 while pregnant with her first child. In 1956, Torun moved to France with her third husband, Walter Coleman, an Afro-American painter, meeting many of the jazz greats of that time. She designed jewellery for among others, Billie Holiday which Holiday wore when she performed.

In 1968, she moved to Germany. She had a workshop and worked with other artists in an association called “Die Schwinge”.Beginning in 1967, Torun’s production was taken over by Georg Jensen silver. Since moving to Germany, Torun worked on things other than jewellery, including cutlery, chinaware and handbags. In 1978, Torun moved to Indonesia where she still lives.

On November 5, 1992, Torun was awarded the Prince Eugen medal by King Carl XVI Gustav of Sweden. The medal is bestowed for outstanding artistic achievement.
