Jacques Jarrige

"Figure #2" Pendant , 2017
Silver hand cut and hammered
3 x 2 in (7.62 x 5.08 cm)
Pendant Necklace in Silver with a mobile figure cut and hand-hammered by Jacques Jarrige and mounted on a leather cord. Jarrige's jewelry is more companion than ornament, heightening one's physical awareness and bestowing the pleasure of inhabiting a well-built structure — a structure so light that it doesn't weigh on the body while delivering the theatricality of Jarrige's fluid gestures, translated into common yet gorgeously crafted metals. The intentional lack of preciousness allows for a sense of spontaneous playfulness.
