MARKET ABOUNDS WITH INNOVATIVE NEW JEWELRY ITEMS Associated Press
Happily, there is a fashion that doesnít demand constant dry-cleaning or a
stick-thin figure. itís called jewelry. Itís been a century since
Danish sculptor-turned-silversmith Georg Jensen opened shop in Copenhagen,
offering sculpturally inspired jewelry and silverware designs - many still in
production today. His creative heirs continue to turn out innovative items
for this still-thriving business on both sides of the Atlantic.
American-born designer Jacqueline Rabun has come up with witty Jensen centennial
jewelry, featuring visual puns in its 100 Collection of sterling silver pieces.
Rings, earrings, necklaces come in the forms of the digits 1 and 0, worn singly
or counting out the total. Choose the Uno ring ($200) with a slashing 1 or the
Zero ($250) with a polished concave disc representing 0. Or perhaps the 100 neck ring
($800), a pair of the Zero discs dropping from a torque necklace. Supply the
missing digit with a pair of Uno earrings ($235).
For nostalgia, updated, Jensen offers the classic Daisy textured sterling silver brooch ($160), now colored with translucent enamel petals in sweet pink or warm yellow in addition to white. Originally created in 1940 by Danish royal jeweler A. Michelsen to mark the birth of Queen Magrethe of Denmark (nicknamed "Daisy"), the new versions of this simple design are aimed at young buyers, Jensen says. Theyíre modeled worn on sleeves, belts, pockets, caps. Go-withs include Daisy earrings in a three-flower drop design ($95 or $160) and a Daisy ankle chain ($75). The designs will be in the Georg Jensen shops by April 5, the centennial date. U.S. stores can be found in New York City, Chicago, Honolulu, and Short Hills, N.J., and new outlets will open later this spring in New York Cityís Soho neighborhood and in Greenwich, Conn.
