Vintage Silver Aarikka Finland Necklace

Vintage Silver Aarikka Finland Necklace

Vintage Silver Aarikka Finland NecklaceThis monumental pendant by renown designer Kaija Aarikka is Hopea’s latest edition this week. Begun in 1954, the Aarikka brand has evolved into one of the best loved purveyors of Finnish design. Her designs with birch balls and silver-wire are more widely known, but I especially love Kaija’s early work in silver during the 1960s. Her jewelry has a tactile and graphic element that reveals her beginning in textiles.

Check it out on Hopea.
