Unn Tangerud for Uni David-Andersen "Juvel" Necklace - Sold
A fantastic necklace designed by Unn Tangerud for the Norway studio of Uni David-Andersen. The piece displays Tangerud's expressive, almost primitive style of design. Her unusual aesthetic marries ethnographic influences with her own unique vision of Norwegian jewelry, past and present. The individual movement of the "tassle" details gives the piece a playful quality. It has a hefty weight and the feel of quality craftsmanship.
Unn Tangerud joined the workshop of David-Andersen under the leadership of Andersen's grand-daughter, Uni Andersen. In the 1960s, Uni and her team of women designers were pushing boundaries with their technical innovations and original designs.
