Crystal City Pendant by Jorma Laine
Jorma Laine, 1973
This striking crystal pendant is a rare example of Jorma Laine's work. Most often working in bronze, this silver modernist pendant is an exciting and highly collectable departure for Laine.
Finnish designer Jorma Laine is best known for his pieces produced at the Turun Hopea studio during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Using imagery from Viking Lore, he created jewelry shapes reflecting the current mid-century fashion. As one of the most prominent Finnish designers to work in bronze, he chose it for the warmth of color and the idealism of making design affordable to the public.
Sterling silver, crystal, excellent condition, Jorma Laine and Finland hallmarks, dated 1973, pendant 3.25" long, chain 26" long .
