Gerda Lynggaard and her husband Nikolai Monies have been designing costume jewelry made from natural elements since the 1970's. They have been tremendously successful and have boutiques in every fashion capital in the world. Their jewelry usually combines elements of nature such as seeds, horn, stone, shell, coconut etc. This set is a little unusual since it is made mostly of wood, is hand painted and has a animal, namely a tiger as its focal point. The large head of the tiger is in the middle of a necklace which also has stylized wood hand painted rounds and stacks of wood black discs. The tiger's appearance can be whatever you see in him: fierce,passionate, powerful or sensual. However, one thing is certain is that his powerful energy is transmitted to this necklace. He is brown colored with stripes of black. The bottom area is white with a hint of red by the nose. His lashes are white but it is his slanted sharp blue eyes that warn you to stay away. All this is hand painted on a carved piece of wood. The rounds on either side of him are not perfectly round and have black stripes on a brown background. The necklaces closes with Monies iconic polished horn clasp. There is an area in both the horn clasp and the back of the tiger where a Monies gold identification coin once was, but they have disappeared. This happens often with Monies products but one of the earrings still maintains this gold coin. The necklace measures 19+" in length, the tiger is 1 3/4"x 2"h, the rounds are 1 3/4"h x 1 3/4"w. The earrings are huge. The are concave and a perfect circle with a radius of 2". They are clip on earrings and are painted brown with black stripes. The embedded identification coin reads "Gerda Lynggaard Monies Copenhagen." The necklace and earrings are light in weight and easy to wear. I believe this set to be early Monies. A set like this doesn't come around often. It is dramatic, striking and definitely makes a statement! Beware the eyes of the tiger!!! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
