This bracelet is characteristic of Bülow-Hübe’s work for silver manufacturer Georg Jensen with its simple yet elegant curving forms that were not designed to appeal solely to the wealthy. Bülow-Hübe favored glass or semi-precious stones rather than precious gems, and intended her jewelry to be sculptural extensions of the human form.
