Friedrich Becker (1922-1997) was one of the outstanding artist personalities on the jewelry scene in the latter half of the 20th century. Invisible settings containing interchangeable stones, variable pin jewelry, and stainless steel combined with synthetic precious stones took care of a new aesthetic in jewelry. His delight in playing with movement resulted in the realization of kinetics in large and small formats.
