Luna PamAsselbergs|Late wedding ring Luna for a client-friend. In the original design the new owner’s husband was 3D-scanned, and placed on top of the cat (all she loves), but this client preferred just a sphinx cocktail ring. The pussy was hand-carved in wax; and because the animal had to be as near as possible  to her own pet, quite some wax models were cut. Luna was silk-polished with chalk. The inside is high gloss and inscribed. Materials 18ct gold, diamonds

Smizing chain

MiamiEthnics pamasselbergs|When I arrived in Miami I was winked by a passport control man. He was very serious but suddenly asked if I’d made this necklace myself. He loved it. It was a black man. That week several black people in Miami told me they loved the portrait. I think it was a little disaster: a very difficult exercise from little pieces of soft pitch and vulnerable glass which I found at the beach of Collioure.

Sun & Silence

NG STILTEDOOSJE|In his last days my father mostly smiled. This kind of smile, very peaceful. I decided to make a box of silence from these memories. It took me two months to perfectly shape, solder, carve, polish, lacquer, and gild the little sculpture. Quite some things to keep you busy. I gave my piece of sweet & tears away to one of my dearest friends who said it reflects his face. Material 1st grade silver, 18k gold-plated
