This piece is from a wonderful collection of jewellery by Canadian greats Walter Schluep and Hans Gehrig purchased directly from their ateliers in the 1970s & 80s.
The pieces collectively show Schluep and Gehrig’s great range in style and techniques, and many stand as marvellous little sculptures in their own right. They’re all exquisitely well made.
This pendant is very detailed appears to have been cast from a seed pod or some sort of shell (we'd love to hear if you know). It's unusually large in scale, so please do have a look at the profiles and the final image in to see what it looks like in hand.
