1 in stock

The contrast of polished silver againsta matte oxidized background creates a dramatic look in this stunning necklace. The series of alternating demi-lune shapes lay comfortably on the neck and reflect a modern interpretation of ancient patterns.

Metal/precious (The Argentium Sterling Silver elements have been cast from original models fabricated in silver by the artist. Contructed and hand finished. Limited edition.)

16.75 x .8 x .25 inches

About the artist

Ms. Stigberg received a B.A. in Art History from Wheaton College. She lives and works in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts. Over her 40 years as a metalsmith, she has worked in silver, gold, and platinum for several NE designers while developing her own designs. She studied with Ron Pearson and Heikki Seppa, and at the MFA Museum school. Each new technique broadened the possibilities for her own work and refined her skills. The result is a body of work combining traditional silversmithing techniques with an innovative modern style. In 1980, Jan and two fellow jewelers started a jewelers group in the Boston area for the exchange of technical information and creative inspiration. Forty years later, the group has expanded to include a dozen other jewelers. Now called Forge and Gorge, the members assemble monthly to critique each other's work, discuss evolution of contemporary craft, and enjoy a good meal. ...Read MoreRead Less
