About CHP Jewelry Collection - Gijs Bakker ProjectsGijs Bakker wanted to show the international design world that a piece of jewellery is more than a decorative fashion accessory. For ‘chp…?’, originality of the concept is central to the design and is supported by a fitting choice of material and technology. By showing that jewellery design evolves just like any other design discipline, ‘chp…?’ fills an existing void by making designer jewelry more widely accessible. ‘chp…?’ invited internationally acclaimed designers to create special pieces for the collection. All first prototypes ever made of designs for ‘chp…?’ are in the collection of the Design Museum Den Bosch. After 23 years ‘chp…?’ will cease to exist and with this auction the public will have a chance to obtain a piece from a remarkable collection.

Born in 1935, Peter Skubic has been considered an important figure in contemporary art jewellery since the 1970s. He regards jewellery-making as “an experiment, a sculptural or performative statement, a bodily activity, the crossing of a boundary, and a creative act of liberation.”
Known for his experimentation with shapes and materials, Skubic was part of the 1960s art scene, his jewellery expressing a symbolic and formal assertiveness, often conveying a sense of irony and irreverence. In the 1980s, Skubic shunned gold as a material filled with historically negative values. He chose to work only with lowly materials associated with mass production and industrial society. His favourite material is stainless steel, which he assembles and insets without welding, in an ingenious articulated system of springs, magnets, bars, beams, wires, pins and discs which support constructions that seem surreal. Skubic transforms jewellery into sculptures on several levels. The steel surfaces, polished, colourful, reflective or mirrored, become a means of expression.
