SOLD

Large silver pendant by Liisa Vitali, made from eight organic shaped sections that have been soldered together. The design has much in common with Vitali’s “Gardenia” series which was inspired by the leaves of gardenia flowers. The blackened, gently hammered surface brings depth and movement and the design has been likened with Finnish forest pools.

More about the product

This necklace is a unique piece, designed and handmade by Liisa Vitali. It originates from her private estate.

Liisa Vitali is Finland’s most important female silversmith, whose progressive and sensual approach to jewelry making strongly contributed to Finnish jewelry becoming greatly appreciated worldwide in the 1960s and 1970s. Vitali is best known for her beautiful ”Ladybird” and ”Lace” series.

Vitali’s artistic style is a unique, beautiful representation of the Finnish modernist jewelry that emerged in the early 1960s, inspired by Scandinavian jewelry and Finnish folklore. Other important representatives of this movement were Tapio Wirkkala, Pentti Sarpaneva and Björn Weckström.
