All I can say is wow! Flavor Flav has nothing on this superb piece! Another stunning example of the magnificent Danish craftsmanship. Necklace features a 2 tiered extra large heart pendant, that has a 3-dimensional look. Pendant hangs from original split circle link chains and features a catch hook. I have only ever seen one other and it was smaller, so this could be one of kind. Mikkelsen only designed and created jewelry under his own brand for 8 years before returning to the Georg Jensen Company. Heavy and substantial, this piece has absolutely no damage and has been professionally polished - looks almost new! Quite the conversation starter and collector's piece.

ANDREAS MIKKELSEN
Andreas Mikkelsen grew up in the town of Handbjerg, catching fish and lobsters which he sold to a nearby hotel. In his youth he moved to Copenhagen where he trained at the Niels Brock School before attending the Copenhagen Business School and finally taking a career as a sales manager for Georg Jensen in 1963. He quickly progressed at the silversmithy and in 1970 established his own design company, A/M Design. He developed his own jewelry for eight years before returning to Georg Jensen and in 1983 became the artistic director after it merged with Holmegaard Glassworks. Many of his jewellery designs were also incorporated into the Georg Jensen repertoire whilst he seems to have retained the copyright for them, which may seem unusual, but if you are the managing director, you can always make exceptions. Later, he moved to London to design watches and jewelry independently both A/M Design and Georg Jensen and in 1992 he was awarded both the Kaj Bojesen Prize as well as the Design Plus Award. Andreas Mikkelsen died on July 26th, 2008 at the age of 79.
