Jewellery Niki de Saint Phalle, Assemblage Necklace 1974/2015, Louisa Guinness Gallery

Celebrated as one of the few female monumental sculptors, Niki de Saint Phalle also brought her distinguished hand to smaller artforms – such as this eye-catching necklace. A self-taught and versatile artist, her creations – often noted for their simplicity, directness and naïve style – engaged freely with a range of artistic influences, from pop to cubism. Her jewellery required skilled craftsmen and could take months to perfect, resulting in exquisite and unique designs. An example is this ‘Assemblage Necklace’, exhibited and on sale with Louisa Guinness Gallery, which continues to champion Saint Phalle’s pioneering contribution to the fields of art and jewellery.
