‘Das Licht’ – Diamond Pendant Commission

Recently I accompanied a special woman (I will call her M) on a creative journey that resulted in a spectacularly beautiful diamond pendant.

The idea

M had the initial idea some time ago, and we followed up with a first exploratory session, discussing shapes, forms, ideas and emotions, trying different perspectives to see what insights we could gain. This was followed by an intensive afternoon working together. We were searching for forms, materials and texture, constantly sensitive to the magic of the creative process. In her garden we found beautiful leaves, twigs and flowers that announced their willingness to participate.  The stone, an uncut diamond with sparkling inclusions, has a strong presence and character, a voice that needs to be heard.

After some searching, matching and experimenting, the stone found its setting. Finally it was time to bring all the aspects of the pieces together in the form of a pendant.

Coming together

The result is a beautiful, light setting that allows the stone to shine and glitter, while carefully cradling and protecting it. The pendant is only complete when it rests contently, gorgeously, against M’s skin. She looks fantastic wearing it. Its name, ‘Das Licht’ or ‘The Light’, captures the many facets of this unique piece.

It was an amazing and satisfying experience working with M.

‘The Wave’ – Pendant Commission

Picking up shells is something we’ve all done. Bare feet on warm sand with soft waves washing around our ankles. The soothing sound of the ocean and the distinct smell of the beach.

One day E (I will call this special woman E) found herself on a beach where a specific shell caught her eye. She had been thinking about freedom and being free, so she decided that this shell would be her ‘freedom companion’.

We worked on a couple of ideas and concepts, making sketches and playing with shapes. After some time, the pendant found its form.

The finished pendant beautifully plays with the shell’s shape and complements the flowing movements suggested on its surface. The waves gently embrace and hold the shell.

It has been wonderful to accompany E on her journey. Her freedom is now always with her in the form of her unique pendant, ‘The Wave’.
