Georg Jensen

Danish, 1866 - 1935

Born in 1866 to a Danish knife grinder, George Jensen's dedication to crafting jewelry began at the age of just 14, when he began an apprenticeship in goldsmithing. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in in 1892, he began his career as a ceramics modeler before the need to support his two sons eventually propelled him pursue a career in silver making.
 
Utilizing his unique mix of fine arts and metalsmithing knowledge, Jensen quickly rose to prominence as of the leading 
Art Nouveau stylists of the country. By the end of the 1920s, he had opened retail jewelry stores in Berlin, London, and New York, with his expertly refined pieces almost single-handedly reviving the tradition of the artist craftsman in the process.
 
Today, Jensen's dedication to craftmanship can still be found in his company's work, which has expanded from hollowware to watches, vintage and contemporary jewelry and home products. Keeping with Jensen's philosophy, the company maintains its commitment to creating stunning pieces that meet at the intersection of form and function.
