Here is a stunning, stylized, vintage Sterling link bracelet made by world renowned master craftsman and contemporary jewelry artist John Iversen. This particular design is called the “Tower Bracelet” and was part of his Spike Collection and dates to the late 1980’s. It measures 7” long, including the catch. The links graduate from 1 ½” wide to ¾” wide, closest to the catch. This unusual bracelet has a gold wash finish and it has the original tag which reads, John Iversen Sterling. Each curved sliver has a finely hammered, textured design which softens light reflections when worn. This rare bracelet is in excellent vintage condition and has been authenticated by John Iversen as one of his hand crafted originals. We contacted Mr. Iversen who is still around and designing. He stated that he designed this bracelet 25-30+ years ago and that it is presently not in production. It was sold in Artwear and Takashimaya stores, here in NYC, both of which are currently out of business. John Iversen was born in Germany and currently lives in Sag Harbor NY. His credits include the George Jensen award at the Smithsonian Craft Show, the Herbert Hoffman prize at an exhibition in Germany and the Excellence in Crafts Award at the Baltimore ACC craft show. His work is featured in galleries around the world. He works in bronze, silver and gold. His work is actually wearable sculpture, as is abundantly apparent in this bracelet. Due to its intricate construction, each sliver moves, undulates and forms to the wrist. He draws heavily on natural environmental elements for his inspiration. One review reads “Iversen’s work is as varied and unique as the natural world itself”. This bracelet is truly a work of art and highly desired by collectors and artisans alike.
