Jewellery - Found Objects


German jewellery designer Hermann Jünger is one of the most important and most influential 20th-century jewellery designers. He was one of the pioneers who granted jewellery a whole new status.

"A piece of brick or scrap of rusted metal or plastic has no less value or standing than some expensively worked artifact made of the most costly materials – provided of course that each possesses the power and expressiveness of a fully accomplished form x Found treasures and jewelry pieces united – connections, parallels, correspondences: one thing referring to the other."
