Medallion: Clear amber piece in a jewellery metal
frame with a plant-motif ornamental chain.

K. Simanonis (b. 1937) treats amber jewellery as a
luxury, representational object that is not worn every day, but only on special
occasions. The artist revived engraving in his jewellery pieces, as well as
incrustation and the filigree and cast silver techniques which particularly
suited this unevenly shaped mineral. His jewellery pieces are asymmetrical,
feature different surfaces, and are dynamic and expressive.

jewellery artist is a recognized Lithuanian art figure. He was born in 1937 and
graduated from the Tallinn Institute of Art in 1965 (specializing in metallic
