Reason to celebrate! Björn Weckström, the internationally renowned and beloved Finnish jewely artist and sculptor, is celebrating his 85th birthday this year. We pay homage to his extraordinary career spanning way over half a century by reintroducing three of his fascinating pieces combining silver and acrylic and a series of gold items. The Petrified Lake ring, famous for having been worn by Yoko Ono, is produced in a limited series of 85 pieces and is available only in the Lapponia webshop and Lapponia’s Flagship Store in Helsinki. The Creature no 5 necklace from the early 1970’s and the Sorgente earrings from the late 1980’s, also limited series, are available at selected retailers, too. What once was considered downright scandalous – combining precious metal with ”cheap plastic” – is now regarded as a milestone in contemporary jewelry art. The Thai collection designed in the 70’s combines rich texture of matte gold and small diamonds set in platinum.
