A beautiful silver brooch Abstract Sun designed by Studio Else & Paul, Hadeland, Oslo - Norway. The brooch is a typical example of the 1970's ‘new’ look using the technique called ‘lost-wax’ method. The jewelry was first modelled in wax, then a mould of plaster was cast around it. The wax melts when heated – liquid silver was poured into the mould while rotating. When removed from the mould, the piece is hand-finished and a layer of 999 pure silver is added for the final finish.The work of Else & Paul is now avidly sought after, although in their early years, they were considered too advant garde for most people. Labeled: Studio E & P Norway Sterling 925. Measures pendant: 5 cmH x 5 cmW x 0,5 cmD.
Norwegian Else Bernstein Hughes (1938–2002) and Englishman Paul C. Hughes (1934–1981) met in 1959 at the Central School of Arts & Crafts in London. Later they established their own workshop ‘Studio Else & Paul’ in Hadelund, Nr Oslo, Norway. They became pioneers in the studio silver movement in Norway in the 1970s
