One of the early pieces, although not of the very first ones. Here I already began to create hollows covered with metal leaf all around. This piece of jewellery is the one that is reproduced on my visiting-card.
Does anybody NOT remember the song “Venus” of “Shocking Blue”? It appeared vividly in my mind when I had finished this piece. White goldleaf inside. A simple facet on the rear, the same on the four sides, creates an astonishing effect, depending on the distance and angle from where you look at the jewel.
A very special detail of this pendant is the combined wedge-shaped cut inside, which is made creating two cuts with diamond wheels of a different angle.
The resulting hollow is, as I do with most of my pendants, covered with 23 3/4 carat goldleaf. As necklace I used a so called snake-necklace, made of 925/000 silver.

The pendant “Reflections” looks rather simple,
but during the process of cutting it represented quite a challenge …
it has a pentagon-shape cross-section!
That causes interesting … reflections!

With amber coloured glass you also can achieve a combination that is worth to have a look at it.
Front and back are curved, which creates a magnifying-glass-effect and alienizes reflections.
Size: 55 x 18 x 11 mm
