Bernhard Schobinger, ‘Bernstein Bronze necklace’, 2015, Gallery S O

Little pearls were mounted on the tip of date seeds cast in bronze and then patinated. Then they were joined by a fine cobalt wire to form a chain together with acorns made of amber. The piece is simply exquisite: It's an extremely wearable and subtle necklace that on a closer look reveals rich formal references to female anatomy and the theme of fertility.
