This necklace I created was inspired by the one Verena Sieber-Fuchs made and called Firecracker. She is one of my favorite Jewelry artist. You can actually see some of her works at the Elegant Armor : The Art of Jewelry exhibit at the Museum of arts and design in New York. If you get to be in New York from now until July 5th, it's a must see!
Here's how the curator Ursula Ilse-Neuman introduced the exhibition :
"Elegant Armor: The Art of Jewelry" presents innovative pieces of contemporary art jewelry from our permanent collection, dating from the 1940s to the present. The works on display range from the subtle to the flamboyant, from the purely geometric to the organic, and from narrative to sculptural works that extend the limits of the human body. The exhibition presents the major themes, materials and techniques that make contemporary jewelry visually exciting and intellectually stimulating."
