One of the functions of art is to connect modern phenomena with the past. The theme of both unique pieces deal with the processing of information. The printed circuit of a calculator seems to form a human profile – the spirit in the machine, which does all the calculating in its head. Using coloured gemstones I emphasised the resemblance in the style of the 16th century painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo.”
The golden, frame-shaped piece can be used both as a necklace and a brooch. The colourful stones provide glowing highlights for the piece. One unique Spirit of the Machine piece has been made. The large pendant part can also be replaced with a small diamond lock.
- Size guide
The length of a necklace
Refer to the image to see how the necklace lengths set. This will make it easier to predict the size of a necklace when worn. The image is also a good guideline when looking for a correct length for a bit lower hanging necklace. Some Lapponia necklaces are stiff and will not set the same way as in the picture.
- Care instructions
Lapponia gold products can be cleaned with special cleaning agents for gold, available in jewelry shops. Gold jewelry can also be cleaned with water and mild detergent with a small and soft brush.
Metal oxidation cause tarnishing of precious metals such as silver. This is caused, among others, by the sulfur compounds that the air contains. Chemicals, such as skin care products and perfumes also contribute to the tarnishing of the jewelry. This is why the jewelry should always be put on after make-up and use of hair products. A good rule of thumb is “put on last, take off first”. The storage conditions and method of cleaning also affects the required polishing frequency.
Please keep in mind that proper storing and usage are essential to maintain the jewelry in good condition. Silver is a fairly soft material and has got a tendency to become easily scratched. To achieve the best possible outcome of cleaning of the jewelry, we recommend you to send the piece of jewelry through our retailers to our Lapponia production for cleaning.
Information about pearls and mother-of-pearl:
- Both freshwater pearls and mother-of-pearl are used in the production of Lapponia Jewelry. Both are similar to their characteristics.
- As pearls and mother-of-pearl are natural materials they can easily lose their typical shine and lustre.
- Cosmetics, such as perfumes, hairspray and moisturisers and perspiration may damage pearls, mother-of-pearl and the stringing material. We recommend you always to wipe your pearls after use with a clean, soft cloth, such as a flannel.
- It is also a good idea to have your pearl strings checked by a professional from time to time and, when necessary, have them re-stringed.
- The surface of a pearl may be damaged by sharp objects, so it is essential to store and use them separately from other jewelry.
- The basic rule is to dress pearls on last and take them off first.
