A sterling new collection from the Danish silversmith doyen, made in collaboration with contemporary designer Jacqueline Rabun
Jacqueline Rabun debuted her first collection for Georg Jensen in 2000, featuring an egg-shaped resin bracelet, symbolic of the enduring relationship between parent and child. The curvilinear design is reintroduced this spring in a 26-piece collection, beautifully hand-sculpted in sterling silver and 18-carat rose gold.
Coined the Offspring collection, it represents Rabun’s deft flair for proportions, while adhering to the codes of the Danish house, a leader in timeless, sculptural silverware since 1904.
Riffing on the original egg-shaped bangle, the new collection features sleek and polished pendants; dangling drop earrings and sweeping, sinuous bangles, designed to sit perfectly on the wrist. Interlocking ovals represent the bond between two people, reflective of Rabun’s thoughtful and tender approach to jewellery design.
“My work is informed by human experience,” says Rabun “I often explore the beauty of birth, love and transformation when I am creating and I work with natural fluid forms. The organic egg form is a symbol of birth, and the connection between the small and larger egg represents unconditional love and the importance of one's heritage and roots.”
While each elliptic piece suggests organic spontaneity, works are designed in Rabun’s new Clerkenwell studio with exacting precision. “That’s the trick,” smiles Rabun. “Each piece in the Offspring collection has been designed to enhance the natural curves of the body.”
