Hello, my name is Cosima Friesen. I am owner and curator of Hopea, an online store specializing in vintage Nordic jewelry designs from 1960-75. On this, my blog, I share sneak peeks at pieces coming soon, general happenings at Hopea, as well as lots of design inspiration.
When I first discovered mid-century Nordic jewelry, I was struck by how incredibly modern and fresh the pieces were. I was amazed that I had never come across the work before, despite my own interest in Scandinavian design. As I continued to explore, I began to suspect that other design lovers might also be taken by these imaginative and sculptural forms. Shop the collection.
