This week Georg Jensen launched their updated Offspring collection and I was lucky enough to preview it at a beautiful intimate event held on International Women’s Day at the home of the collection’s designer, Jacqueline Rabun.
Jacqueline started collaborating with the brand in 2000, when she was tasked with creating an elegant egg-shaped piece to symbolise love, harmony and evolution. She started with a wire frame and used clay to model the smooth curved bangle with an interlocking smaller shape to mimic the unbreakable bond between mother and child. That very first model was on display today, alongside the original sterling silver bangle, as well as the rest of the new 26 piece collection – an evolution that now includes earrings, necklaces, bracelets, bangles and rings, and styles in rose gold, as well as pieces set with diamonds.
It was an honour to spend time with Jacqueline at her beautiful new home – these pictures could never do it justice – and it was so interesting to hear about her passion for design and jewellery. Jacqueline’s studio sits within her home, and it’s the most chic workspace I think I’ve ever seen, with sketches, moodboards, and tools that could all be art in themselves! I spotted some beautiful pieces from Jacqueline’s own collection and I can see why Georg Jensen wanted to work with her. She’s influenced by nature, architecture, and the human body, and the timeless beauty and organic lines of her designs most definitely resonate with the brand.
