Georg Jensen – Heart Pendant – Small

 

A minimalist contemporary take on a charm necklace, this pendant is formed from a single band of sterling silver which is folded and twisted into the shape of a heart. Given as a stylish but thoughtful token of love, it takes on particular significance as it hangs just over the wearer’s own heart. Understated and chic, it looks as good with jeans and a t-shirt as it does with an evening dress.

One of Denmark’s most prolific and influential designers, Henning Koppel worked with Georg Jensen on projects ranging from jewellery to tableware and cutlery to clocks. His pieces are the very essence of classic Danish modernism and remain perfect examples of the genre.

Measurements: H: 14 mm / 0.55 inches. W: 15 mm / 0.59 inches, with 45 cm anchor chain. The length of the chain can be shortened by using the loops.

Designer - H. Koppel

Designer - Henning Koppel

Henning Koppel was a native of Copenhagen and joined the Georg Jensen Company when he was 27. He had just returned to Denmark from Sweden where he, a Jew, had fled to escape the German occupation of Denmark.

He was trained as an artist, particularly in drawing and sculpture and studied at the Kunstakademiet (Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts) and the Academie Rancon in Paris. From the beginning, his silver work was abstract and sculptural and unlike anything that went before. His early designs were for jewellery and the forms were flowing and organic looking, closer to the work of other artists of his time like Aalto, Calder, Dali and Leger than anything ever produced at the Georg Jensen silversmithy.

By the late 40s, Koppel shifted to designing primarily hollowware and his pieces bear a distinctive sculptural quality harking back to his training as a sculptor.
