The piece of work consists in a pendant made of yellow, pink and white gold with various mounted diamonds. It has also parts made of mother-of-pearl and tiger’s-eye. This pendant is part of a jewelry collection designed and commissioned by the artist during the Seventies. In terms of volumes and shapes, this jewelry’s design evokes the sculptures Paola Martelli created back then using marble, bronze and lacquer wood. In 2012, the piece has been published on the catalogue “PAOLA MARTELLI, sculture gioielli anni ‘70” by L’Artiere publishing house. The book features an introduction by Beatrice Buscaroli.
