Kirsten Sonne’s golden pig necklace is striking enough to transform even the most ordinary outfit and make you look really special. Combining seemingly mundane materials such as a golden toy pig and black and red beads, it nevertheless makes a strong design statement. In her characteristic style, Kirsten has made her golden pig necklace exclusively from recycled elements.

Kirsten is a fantastic collector of delightful odds and ends that end up as jewels. Recycled materials inspire her and are the basis of her work. She makes everything by hand and never exactly repeats a piece. While she sometimes works on themes or in series, like all her works, you can count on this being a unique design.
