Niels Erik From was a Danish silversmith and jewelry designer. He was born in 1908, and began his career in 1931, he registered his silversmith status in 1944. He lived and worked until 1982. Originally, From’s designs developed from the Skønvirke style, which was a Scandinavian movement inspired from the Arts and Crafts period. His early work was floral with a strong bent towards natural elements, involving flower motifs, fish, etc. Beginning in the 1950s, his brand was mostly curated by other designers. A new style emerged, alongside the old, that was geometric, abstract, and modernist. This bracelet bears a hallmark that dates it to the 1950s time period.
Amber, the stone on this bracelet, is known for its glowing resinous luster. It forms from the hardened resin of ancient trees and can contain early plants or insects. These particular pieces of resin are free of any organic life and are a beautiful deep orange color, like the sun setting at dusk. The Ancient Greek historian, Nicias, believed that amber was made of drops of sweat formed on the earth as the sun set beneath the waves.
