Eternal Union Pendant by Olga Yatskaer

Home > Winners > #49020


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Eternal Union

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Pendant

INSPIRATION:
This shape represents the two bound together as one, or the one being an unbreakable and endless union of the two. Like the best of our feelings, combining the lovely, the beautiful and the endless. The further it materialized, the more I felt in love with it.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This design is in fact one shape that looks like two interconnected shapes, thanks to the fine engraving. It looks simple yet full of meaning. Some would find in it a touch of ancient Celtic jewelry or even Herakles knot. You can see an eternity symbol, a 8 and maybe other symbols that make us think. And it is unique in that this particular design never existed in the history before it was conceived in February 2016.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Wear it on a 18K yellow gold chain up to 2mm thick, the typical length being 42 to 45 cm or longer.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The first sketch was conceived in February 2016 in Wavre, Belgium. The actual piece was produced in March/April. It was first exhibited in May 2016 in Chateau de l'Ermitage in Wavre. The event has received Belgian press coverage.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The piece is made in yellow gold 18K. The design started from a sketch on paper. Subsequently, a detailed design was created, and the actual piece was produced using a mix of professional jewelry making techniques. A combination of traditional and high-tech approaches has been applied. Various European and American tools and machinery have been used to produce it. A detailed explanation of the process is attached, however any further details can be provided to the jury.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The pendant dimensions are 19mm x 31mm. The thickness is between 4 and 7mm. The opening for the chain is approximately 2.2mm in diameter.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The purpose was to design a simple yet appealing and wearable jewelry piece, combining the classic and contemporary influences. The risk with a simple design is that someone else may have already created it sometime in the past. Therefore, once the shape was conceived, I made a research to make sure it does not resemble any other piece. I searched through my library of books and publications on jewelry design. I also googl'ed the images of celtic, greek and etruscae pieces. So far I concluded that this design is indeed something new and unique.

CHALLENGE:
Today, millions of designs made for the last 7000 years are available just a few mouse clicks away. It was a real challenge to create a jewelry piece that would be simple yet new. And more on the technical side, to place a very thin engraving on this miniature piece was quite of a challenge as well.

NAME:
Olga Yatskaer

PROFILE:
From the background, Olga is a professional historian and a psychologist. But since she was a little girl, she has always had passion for jewellery. She created her very first jewellery designs while still at high school during the breaks. Around 2003, Olga started with fantasy jewellery as a hobby but soon realised that she wants to take it to the next level. In 2011-2013, Olga studied jewellery making, enameling, modeling and design at the Arts et Metiers school in Brussels, from which she has got a diploma with the greater distinction. And to further excel in the mastership, she took private lessons from Eduard K., the mysterious jewellery virtuoso known by very few as the true author of exquisite masterpieces made for major jewellery houses in Belgium as well as Philippe Bouchez, one of the pioneers of new-age stonesetting in Europe. "The jewelry pieces created by Olga are unique objects of art, born through creative inspirations just like paintings or sculptures. These creations reveal powerful emotions while being full of poetry. Whether it's about the fantasy or luxury jewelry, she creates all pieces by her magic fingers using various materials, shapes and colours. In her new luxury gold and silver jewelry collection, we can discover this subtle touch of her soul, which is what marks the real uniqueness of jewelry creations by Olga." (Patricia Timmermans) We are glad to share with you the passion and inspiration of Olga, and hope you will really enjoy it.
