Defining from this design on the rest of Chris Steenbergen's oeuvre, this Dutch brooch is described as his signature piece, once in a private collection and now serving as a collectible piece of future antique jewellery. Representing a rope-jumping woman in silver with 14K yellow gold features glistening through from the back, this balletic figure symbolizes the grace and strength by which every modern woman moves through the hurdles of life.
Furthermore, this particular brooch is pictured on page 16 in the catalog of the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Netherlands, named 'Chris Steenbergen, goldsmith' published in 1985.
With this jewel, we will present the (Dutch) booklet 'Chris Steenbergen' by Marjan Unger (Stichting Fonds BKVB, Amsterdam, December 2000).
