Harry Bertoia Hand-Hammered Silver Gong Pendant, USA, 1975
Bertoia had a natural talent for working in metal. At Cranbrook Academy of Art he ran the metal studio and often created jewelry for his colleagues and classmates. This piece was made later in his career as a prototype for a line of jewelry to be produced in Norway but never came to fruition.
