When I set out to make something, I want to forget that I am in a process of making jewelry; I just have to let it become what it is.”  ”Jewelry is like nature. By closer view it reveals…

Björn Weckström (b. 1935) is a recognized jewelry artist and sculptor. He was the forerunner in designing sculpture-like jewelry for Lapponia Jewelry, drawing his inspiration from the shape and matte surface of gold nuggets from Finnish Lapland. Designing silver pieces, his aim was to use silver to portray the snowy, Finnish winter landscape with its frozen lake surfaces. This how the unique surfaces of Lapponia pieces and the creation of distinctive Lapponia design language were born.

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.
