Julie Bégin: Breuer Necklace


The Modernists collection is inspired by the architectural movement of the same name. This movement, born in the twenties, features materials that are emphasised by strong simple lines, with the superfluous eliminated. This philosophy, when transposed to jewellery, results in the uncluttered juxtaposition of silver on gold, and Tahitian pearls presented in contrasting satin, shiny or matte finishes, letting the material speak for itself. Volumes are set against hollows, emptiness in turn becomes substance, object. The beauty and refinement of a design reduced to its simplest expression. This jewellery collection of single edition and small series pieces is produced entirely by hand, using only to the best techniques, with materials of the highest quality.

Suspended from a sterling silver snake chain, the Breuer necklace is crafted of satin finish sterling silver.
Approximate dimensions: pendant is 47 mm x 13 mm x 5 mm, chain is 45 cm long.
