Bent Gabrielsen Pedersen (born in 1928)

and Silversmithing which produced all the
major artists in  Denmark. He was one of the

After he left college he was hired by  Hans Hansen 
where he took over the jewellery design
department from Karl Gustav in 1953. He designed
smooth silver "boomerang" type bracelets and
earrings and "atomic" jewellery with enamel for
Hans Hansen in the fifties.

His variation on the circle form of the the fifties was a necklace of connected links
hung with a pendant that took inspiration from Thor's hammer. The stunning necklace 
he designed for Georg Jensen in 1953 changed the natural form of sycamore seeds
into a symmetrical piece of identical links.
