Lucie Heskett-Brem is a Swiss metal artist whose work in gold—handmade chains, earrings, and rings—is well known. However, in 2014 she brought together a group of four—herself and three other artist-designers: Ruth Borgenicht (USA), who works in clay; David Licata (USA), glass; and Tine De Ruysser (Belgium/UK), paper currency—to create the “four in one group” to encourage each other to explore chain mail, each through a different medium. From this collaborative exploration, Heskett-Brem developed this series of fully three-dimensional works. The sculpture shown here, titled Tesseract, suspends multiple carefully calibrated sterling silver levels of right-angle construction, with a 15mm pink pearl captured at the center. The sculpture suspends from a four-pronged bronze platform, but is also designed to be worn from a sterling silver halter wire.

AJF believes that making information available about jewelry as an art form is an important step in advocating for the field. Our digital library supports the jewelry community by providing online access to jewelry scholarship that would otherwise be impossible to find. 

The library has a new feature that prevents PDFs from being downloaded. Just check the appropriate box when you submit—this will allow people to read the texts, but protects you from undesirable access and distribution.
