The jewellery serie Seagull and moon is made based on the novel Jonathan Livingston Seagull (1970) written by the American writer Richard Bach (1936 – ). The central motifs are the silvergull and the Moon.
The necklace made with cloisonné technique depicts the phases of the gliding. The gliding is possible because the thermal eddies. Birds spread their wings and they can fly without moving.
The necklace is made of 8 connected parts which are covered with black and white opaque enamel. The closing part depicts the Moon and it also covered with black opaque enamel. The parts are connected with black silk cord on the back side. The bird flies one complete round around the neck of the person wearing the necklace.
