Note from a fan. By Marjan Unger

It takes courage for well-trained jewellery designers to do the simple thing. By 'simple things' I mean something that everybody knows already, even if they don't belong to the inner circles of contemporary jewellery design: like a good, unpretentious wedding ring or a bead necklace. Within that circle, life is very colourful and the lines of information are both short and worldwide. Anybody who cares to inform themselves can find what the others are doing via the net, or via the well known meeting points like openings, symposia or other events. Sometimes you get the feeling that the makers are reacting to each other's work and trying to impress each other with frenzied ideas or the most intimate stories, rather than thinking about the people outside this circle, whom might like to wear their work as well.
You can make no mistake in designing such a simple thing as a bead necklace. The result has to be spic and span in its choice of materials, shapes and colour, but there must also be something that makes you feel that it is fresh and lovable and that your life will be all the merrier when you wear that necklace.

 
I had that feeling with the PE/AH necklace with the blue glass bubbles, and it turned out to be true. I have to admit, I am a sucker for beautiful tinges of blue and for bead necklaces, so on the one hand I was an easy target. On the other hand, I like to live in different circles, and I like to travel to places where nobody has ever heard of the highlights of contemporary jewellery design. Where they just look at you - and not so much at what you wear - and listen to the way you respond to their life and what they have to say.
I admire the courage of Samantha Font-Sala and Felix Lindner to take a classic form as their starting point for their PE/AH collection, turn it into striking and very wearable pieces of jewellery and to bridge the overstated boundaries between fashion, accessories and contemporary jewellery. There is no naïveté in what they are doing; they combine this courage with the capacity of the well-trained jewellery designer and the eye of an artist. The result has qualities that are hard to find in the jewellery world that forms their stating point. You may call it elegance, 'savoir vivre', lovely to wear or whatever has to do with having a good time without setting yourself too far apart from others. That is quite an achievement.
