Poul Havgaard’s talent for creating modern jewelry was noticed in 1971, when he joined Lapponia Jewelry. Since 1960, Havgaard had a workshop of his own in his hometown of Faaborg. In addition to jewelry, Havgaard also created sculptures. Silver was Havgaard’s favorite material, even though he designed some golden jewelry, too. In many of his pieces he used amber and silver to create tension by letting those two forms collide.
