Necklace with Wound Silver Pendant
Annealed and Cooled to the Prefect Form. Wound Silver.
The wound pendant on this necklace is handcrafted in the Pforzheim studio of jewellery designer Martin Guthmann. First of all, the silver is cast into strands and then drawn through a semi-circular profile in several work stages. To do this, the silver strand has to be annealed and cooled several times to keep the silver ductile and prevent it from snapping when drawn. Once the desired shape has been achieved, the semi-circular strand is wound to form a pendant. The ends are then welded into the inside of the pendant; finally, they are filed and polished.
Jewellery from Pforzheim. Martin Guthmann.
Making high-quality jewellery that’s affordable for more people was the idea the goldsmith Martin Guthmann had in 1906 for his jewellery manufacturing business. The business is run today in the fourth generation by his great grandson, with all production still located in the jewellery and gold centre of Pforzheim. Milled, stamped, drawn and cast parts in the factory are assembled by hand in smaller series. The designs include among other things old jewellery shapes and ornaments from the company’s archive which are recast and assembled with updated traditional manufacturing techniques.
