Modern Finnish Jewelry Design

Jewelry & Art - 80 years of Goldsmiths' Excellence in Finland

The Finnish Horology Museum in Espoo unveils the secrets of jewelry design and goldsmith’s excellence in an extensive exhibition. The exhibition shows the full spectrum of the jewelry world, from traditional goldsmith samples to borderless jewelry that stretches the concept of what jewelry really is. The exhibition features 26 jewelry design students from the Institute of Design. Each of them has co-operated with a goldsmiths student. The pairs have chosen a common theme, on which both have realized their own views.  The exhibition was fantastic! I took a few phtotos, but unfortunately the glass caused unsharpness & reflections.

I’ll add here a link to Seinäjoki Tango Festival - Tangomarkkinat, if you want to see
how crazy Finland is about tango!

Por una Cabeza, Carlos Gardel 
Gardel (1890-1935) is the most prominent figure of the Argentinian tango.

    Dear riitta,
    Finnish jewellery always has something very special, a certain, inimitable "personality". I like this kind of jewellery very much.
    Good start to the week

    1. Thank you moni, have a nice week you too!

  3. wow sieht klasse aus!!! ausgefallen♥♥♥

  4. Liebe Ritta,
    ich liebe Carlos Cardel und seine Lieder
    Por Una Cabeza

    aber ich liebe auch

    Astor Piazzola und
    Adios Nonino.

    Carlos Gardell verbrannte bei einem Flugzeugunglück in Columbien.
    Ich habe ein ganzes Album mit CD´s von ihm.
    Ich freue mich, dass du einen Tango von ihm zeigst.

    Aber auch der Schmuck ist toll, am besten gefällt mir das erste Collier.

    Komm gut in die Woche lieben Gruß eva

    1. Thank you Eva 💛 I have loved Carlos Gardel too for many years. Shall listen to the tangos you mentioned.

      The whole Finland loves tangos! Of course the way we dance it is less passionate than the Argentinian original. In the Seinäjoki city, in Ostrobotnia there is every year a huge Tango Festival where new Tango Queen and King get their thrones. I cant give you a link with my ipad, but by googling Seinäjoki tango festival you should find.

  5. ...the jewelry is a bit over the top! I understand that the tango is popular in Finland. Thanks Riitta for sharing this post, enjoy your day.

    1. Well, these necklages are made for exhibition, but creative the designers are! Yes, tango is very popular in Finland!

  6. Liebe Riitta,
    das ist wudnerbarer Schmuck! Die Kette auf dem ersten bild finde ich genial, aber uach die schwarze auf dem letzten Bild gefällt mir sehr! Sie hat so etwas geheimnsvolles!
    Ich wünsche Dir eine schöne neue Woche!
    ♥️ Allerliebste Grüße, Claudia ♥️

  7. Son muy interesantes. El tango me encanta. Besitos.

  8. Wonderful jewelry and the right musical mood.
    I would like to wear the first neclace.
    By the way: my garndparents and my mother were goldsmiths.
    Send you autumn sun for a nice week
    (we have still enough of it)

  9. ooooh, the BEST part is knowing about Tangomarkkinat . . wowzer!!!

    1. In general the Finnish people love the tango, me personally not so much... But that is a huge festival indeed.

  10. These are amazing jewelry pieces. Some of them look uncomfortable to wear. I'm fond of wearing rather simple jewelry. The tango is a beautiful dance. We took lessons a few years ago and it's a difficult dance. Enjoy these autumn days.

    1. These designs are created for the exhibition, maybe not for wearing. On our television we have every year the show Dancing with Stars. It is lovely to watch it!

  11. Interesting jewelry and for sure combined with the right outfit a perfect overall picture. But with some parts I don't think it's easy to just wear them.I also like tango very much, a dance that is very expressive.

    Have a beautiful day and greetings over to you


  12. Oh, so creative and unique!

  13. That first one looks pretty uncomfortable!
    Interesting series!
    Thanks for linking up at https://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2019/10/sunrise-over-my-happy-place.html

  14. Such lovely creative jewelry! A pleasure to look at and I'm sure to wear!

  15. Not my style, but I do like the blue beaded one. My dad and mom made silver jewelry. They also polished their own stones to use. I have many beautiful pieces but don't dress up very often to use them any more. - Margy

  16. I'm not one for jewelry but some of this is just intriguing to see! The tango is such a sexy dance! Thanks for the fun link.

    I'm so glad to see you at 'My Corner of the World' this week!

    My Corner of the World

  17. The jewelry is all so unique and beautiful!
