Bjorn Weckstrom "Starfighter" Flame Bronze Necklace
Starfighter by Bjorn Weckstrom for Lapponia Jewelry, 1971
Weckstrom's iridescent Flame Bronze collection is inspired by the aerodynamic designs of the American auto industry. The intense detail of the left side of the Starfighter pendant references an auto engine, while the right side is smooth and infers a forward motion. The length of the long matching chain is a perfect compliment to this wearable sculpture.
Sculptor and jeweler Bjorn Weckstrom is one of the founders of the renowned Finnish jewelry house Lapponia. Weckstrom’s work is award winning, incredibly influential, and collectable.
Bronze, excellent condition, Lapponia and Bjorn Weckstrom hallmarks, 26" chain, 2" x 2.75" pendant.
