A striking runway necklace Modernist style black white beads

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1960s – 1970s
Here is a wonderful Danish modernist necklace with ceramic beads in striking patterns of black and white. Every bead is hand made and therefore different.
There is some influence here from the OP ART movement of the later mid century when objects in stark black and white or primary colour combinations were fashionable.
This striking necklace has a classic ring closing.
Danish modern is a style of minimalist products associated with the Danish design movement with a determined desire to produce affordable, well made, wearable works of art handmade by skilled craftsmen.
As an Art movement Modernism involved a rejection of ornamentation and sought inspiration from technology. Objects influenced by modernism are concerned primarily with essential qualities of colour and flatness, form and function, and exhibit a reduction of interest in surface decoration.
Modernist ornaments are simple and sculptural. Rather than being embellished with faceted stones they rely upon minimal surface decoration and upon the excitement of movement and drama for their impact. The salient points in this type of design are a concentration upon craftsmanship, integrity of materials and quality of finish.
