Frame Magazine quotes:
“The absolute climax of the jewellery display was a design by Frank Tjepkema. From a distance, his piece resembled an opulently decorated cross.
A closer look revealed paper-thin layers of gold-plated steel perforated to proclaim the symbolism of modern religion. Banal logos like those of Coca Cola and Gucci tell the story that jewellery – a metaphor for the Milan furniture fair itself – has always told: the world of capital loves to wrap itself in the illusion of timeless beauty.” Louise Schouwenberg.
Frank Tjepkema: ‘This medallion is the most branded object in the world, (hint: imagine the money you can save on brand clothes by wearing just this item).’
