Signed Walter Schluep Modernist Sterling Silver Pendant (1972)
Wearable pop art, the fabulous Walter Schluep. Handmade in 1972 this semi round brooch is decorated with silver geometric shapes on a resin and enamel background. This pendant is a rare representation how the cultural situation of the 60's influenced a change in Walter Schlueps' creative works of art.
Student protests, the hippie movement and many social challenges, pushed Schluep to effectively produce a unique post modernism/contemporary art that no one else was doing at this time.
