The second world war created shortages which led to innovations in jewellery design, including Malinowski's use of an old technique using iron. "Arno Malinowski had been familiar with use of silver inlay on iron jewelry. Centuries old traditions of the craft existed in Japan, a source where he drew much of his artistic inspiration. In fact, a number of his designs have similar forms to Japanese sword hand guards, or tsubas." Dansk Smykker, Thage
