Georg Jensen – Mobius Earrings – Design 343A

Inspired by the geometric properties of a Möbius strip – a continuous loop with only one side and edge – these graphic and sculptural earrings embody both movement and fluidity as they twist into a spiral. The shiny sterling silver catches the light and creates interest without overwhelming the beauty of the woman who wears them.

Designer Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe’s Möbius collection takes a well known mathematical phenomenon and uses it to symbolise infinite and eternal love. The simplicity and graphic beauty of the pieces is matched by the superb craftsmanship and gives them a timeless quality.

The earrings beautifully crafted from sterling silver are suitable for pierced ears.

Ø: 12 mm / 0.47 inches.

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.
