Pique Dame Silver Studs
Named after an opera by Tchaikovsky, this Pique Dame by Brigitte Adolph radiates an aura of traditional opulence. What looks like delicate, shimmering lace is not fine fabric but in fact high-carat precious metal. The overall length is 1.3 cm.
About the Maker
Jewellery runs through the veins of German designer and goldsmith Brigitte Adolph, as both her parents and grandparents were jewellers. After becoming a goldsmith, she improved her skills while working for the royal jeweller of the Swedish Crown. Her fascination with contemporary design led her to return to study jewellery at the famous University of Pforzeim. Her studies took her from Germany to Denmark, Spain and Switzerland. Currently Brigitte is working in Karlsruhe, Germany. She has received multiple national and international awards for her work.
Brigitte’s work appears to be made form lace, but when touched reveals itself to be solid silver, white or yellow gold. She is interested in employing new and innovative techniques, and at the same time she is inspired by the past - by the ancient traditions of lace-making and by her memories of her homeland.
