Spring Steel Series Necklace
This is a Necklace. It was designed by Eva Eisler. It is dated 2002 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is stainless steel, cold connections. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Eisler’s structurally-based designs, especially those in stainless steel, are inspired by constructivist theory. In this necklace, she linked stainless steel flat springs, a metal component from outside of the jewelry world, into a classic “paper chain” neckpiece.
