Ed Levin Lapis and Sterling pendant Choker Necklace. Original.
Ed Levin was an artist and jeweler whose innovative designs established him as an early leader in the modernist jewelry movement. He opened his first shop in 1950 and continued turning heads with his rule-breaking designs for six decades. “Life, for him, was a continuing exploration of ideas, the senses, and challenging the status quo. He actively supported peace, human rights, civil liberties, and environmental protection.”
He’s quoted as having said: “The diversity and richness of the natural world - and all of the peoples who have inhabited it - will always inspire both art and jewelry. The connections are not necessarily direct or obvious...Nevertheless, our present is still connected to the earth forms and ancestor creations that abound and still touch us."
We see these “connections” singing out in Levin’s pieces. The one we present here just arrived in our shop. At first glance the pendant seems inspired by droplets of water, look closer and a flower appears, a leaf… more.
Stylish, timeless, original and yes, it can be yours
