In our area, areas of deep water ponding in a stream are called “Gumpen”. Our address “Am Gumpen” hints at the fact that there is room for big fish here.
We are glad, however, that sharks are not a native species!
This makes it even more exciting to work on creating a necklace with a sparkling white, picture-perfect shark tooth.
In order to reflect the colors of the Caribbean without resorting to the typical (and somewhat tacky) choice of a turquoise, we instead looked at the entire color palette of our gemstones, ranging from green to white, yellow, blue and turquoise, in order to find an unusual, slightly offbeat color combination that would evoke the impression of the Caribbean.
Working hand in hand with our customer, we settled on a tourmaline with a stunning color gradient from blue-green to white and an opal
with a high turquoise content and a red/green/yellow shimmer.
The result is a complex, yet lightweight and mobile pendant.
