Uni David-Andersen "Medallion" Necklace - Sold

A stunning necklace designed by Unn Tangerud for the Norway studio of Uni David-Andersen. The piece displays Tangerud's expressive style of design; the silver appears almost dripped instead of rigidly cast. The rough hewn textures and "primitive" look reveals how she was influenced by the jewellery of foreign cultures. The piece has a hefty feel and retains the original chain. The pendant also doubles as a brooch when removed from its chain.

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.
