Length: 8.00 inches. Item Weight: 59 grams. Astrid Fog created her first jewellery collection for Georg Jensen in 1969. From the earliest collections, her designs attracted widespread recognition and her pieces for Georg Jensen won her a strong following among the fashion-forward. It is true that Fog infused her designs with a “fashion” sensibility. She worked in clothing design–in both haute couture and ready-to-wear–in addition to hollowware and jewellery. This experience seems to have given her a wonderful appreciation for an audience’s tastes and an advanced understanding of what will catch the eye. Fog participated in exhibitions at the Danish National Arts and Crafts Association several times. There, she made an impression with her exquisite suits, coats, and dresses. The pieces were sewn from hand-woven material produced especially for her designs. Her approach in clothing design is key to her success in creating jewellery as it shows her underlying respect for the material. For a jewellery designer, the way that individual materials relate to the design is of utmost importance. During her lifetime, Astrid Fog was also associated with Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufacturer. Whether producing lamps, jewellery or clothing, her designs bear certain similarities including keen attention to manufacturing detail and clear simplicity. In addition, her legacy includes a rich development of the modernist sensibility. She used combinations of simple geometric shapes, such as circles, squares, and rectangles in ways that were wholly new at the time.
