    http://www.modernity.se/Designer/Torun-B%C3%BClow-H%C3%BCbe/ID/81/Torun-B%C3%BClow-H%C3%BCbe.aspx is a link with more info about her. She first was associated with the Jensen studio in 1967. I did not see this exact design in my Jensen books but did note that she usually used rutilated quartz, sodalite, and moonstone, always with a full bezel setting. She also set bracelets with watches. The open bottom on this bracelet leads me to wonder if it may have been designed as shown

    Thanks for the link.I cannot find this design or any info or pics anywhere either.The bezel setting is broken off at the bottom,I have the piece but not the stone. Still waiting for info from jensen studios..Seems like a pretty rare design by VT,as most of her designs are simple and elegant.I believe this piece to be around a late 1960s-early 1970s ,but i may be way off..There is a possibility that the 3 pieces were added,this is how i found it.Does the bracelet by itself look like one of VT designs from that time period? Thanks again for the info...

    I misunderstood at first..Yes most of her other styles are side or offset opening

    Hi findsalot. My daughter stumbled over your post and made me aware of it. I am Vivianna's daughter and quite frankly, this does not look like anything my mother has made. I have never seen this piece and it is not at all her style of design. The only way I could explain how the stamps got on this is that someone used a part of another piece of jewelry and made something else out of it. I am traveling at the moment, but will look into my files and GJ archives when I get back to Denmark, as I am equally interested in what it is. Kind regards, Marcia

    Mrs. Diallo I was thrilled to receive your response. We had some of the same thoughts, that this piece was altered and the side pieces were added later. We have researched on the internet and viewed many of your mother's pieces. This cuff is very small. Possibly a child's piece of jewelry. We were planting a hedge in our Colorado Springs, Colorado yard. This piece stayed buried until I started watering and it surfaced. It is one of many strange things we have found since purchasing our home 4 years ago. It was definitely buried treasure. After finding it and my husband cleaning it up a bit, I decided to look into the stamp on the back. If nothing else I have enjoyed looking at the beautiful pieces your mother designed. I also enjoyed reading about your mother's life. What a strong woman. It is proof that you can be anything you want to be if you hold tight to your dreams. Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated and we are honored that you took the time to write and look into this. Sincerely, Steve and Marie Lucero

    What an exciting find....keep digging. Researching our garden finds is fascinating and can sometimes help date an old huse.

    Hi,everyone..Thanks for all the new comments and help identifying this piece..I will view the link you have recommended and hopefully find something there...At this point there has not been any solid evidence as to what,where,when..etc.etc...I will keep digging/hoping for more info....

    Don't you just love things that you find that way!? I did a search of Georg Jensen design #174 by Vivianna Torun and found a necklace here: http://danishsilver.com/shop/Georg-Jensen-Jewelry-Necklaces-Vintage-Georg-Jensen-Torun-Necklace-174
    Other than the shape of the quatrz in the pendant, I don't see any similarities at all. I'm sure it's of no real use, but thought I'd post it for you. Thanks for sharing your find and good luck on identifying it!
