Exhibition series "Exhibit of the Month"

Event duration:
from 01 to 31 August 2020

The series of one-showpiece exhibitions is an other way to present the extensive collection of the Kaliningrad Regional Amber Museum, which includes around 16 000 depositary items. This way of demonstrating an art piece allows specialists, its author and guests to look at it out of the context of a themed exhibition.

Paulina Binek. Poland, Gdansk
Necklace, 2009
Silver, coral, amber

The necklace consists of eleven details made of beaded amber, coral, and silver. Every detail is set from two silver plates in the shape of arched disk with a piece of coral (eight elements) or amber (three elements) between them. The details become bigger towards centre. The used coral has bright red colour. Two ambers are polished, dense, of orange colour, one of them – drop-shaped with yellow-brown oxidised crust. The space between elements is uneven. The lock is hook-type.

Paulina Binek was born on 4 September 1968 in Boleslawiec, Poland. She graduated from the Gdansk Jewellery School in 1986. She lives and works in Gdansk. She designs and makes artworks: small statuary, interior objects, jewellery and bijouterie. In her creative works, she tries to emphasise magic nature of the sunstone. She is famous for her jewellery, in which amber is combined with gold, silver, precious stones, silk, linen, wool, and felt. She gets her inspiration for collections from the culture of civilisations of Ancient Egypt, Byzantium, Africa, and South America.
