Georg Jensen – Torun Bangle – Sterling Silver – Design 204

 

The TORUN bangle stands as an iconic symbol of togetherness.

The woman behind the design was Vivianna Torun Bülow-Hübe. She was a strong-minded, unconventional and forward-thinking silversmith, and she would create some of the most recognised designs in the history of Georg Jensen. In a male-dominated industry, Vivianna set new design standards with her artistic and organic interpretations of functionality and aesthetics.

She once said that a piece of jewellery should be like an expression of love, and the TORUN bangle emphasised this; we are stronger together than when apart.

The TORUN bangle is made of sterling silver. There are 5 sizes to choose from.

Circumference: XS: 155 mm / 6.1 inches, S: 165 mm / 6.5 inches, M: 170 mm / 6.69 inches, L: 175 mm / 6.89 inches, XL: 180 mm / 7.09 inches

Designer - V. Torun

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.
