Bjorn Weckstromis an internationally recognized sculptor/jeweler. He won the Lunning Prize in 1968. His sculptural jewelry plays with volumes and surfaces, alternating the light reflections on shiny and matt silver. One of his space series pieces, a necklace titled Planetary Valleys was worn by Princess Leila in the 1977 Star Wars movie.Weckstroms work has been featured in museum shows in many countries. His gold pieces are also extraordinary–hereturns the gold to the look of raw nuggets. Each piece is a miniature sculpture, an art form within itself.
For more information on Bjorn Weckstrom see:
jewelery for Lapponia in 1971. Previously, he had worked as a blacksmith, painter, and sculptor in his hometown of Faaborg. Havgaard used mostly silver to create his jewelry which was sometimes combined with amber. It is Havgaards sensous shapes that create such appeal
his essential design principle was to create tension by the collision of two different forms. To Havgaard, a piece of jewelry becomes part of an individuals personality and can also be a part of the sign language of eroticism
a central tool in influencing the opposite sex. Adorning oneself for another persons sake is one of the central factors that has influenced culture during the course of history.
