17 January 2008

Yet another thing of beauty that I fell head over heels in love with.

It was last autumn, at the Turku Herring Festival in Finland. A goldsmith had a stand, selling his own series of jewellry.

He told us he had collaborated in creating the series with a designer who had studied old Carelian designs. There were earrings, bracelets, pendants and... rings.

And I bought this ring, made of bronze. When a colleague of mine saw it, she said 'it looks like something out of Lord of the Rings!'.

I want one of those! I have a heavy iron ring with a blob of bronze, it looks a little like a knights helmet... quite different, but I was reminded of it by this photo.

Yeah, if I could have afforded it, I bet I could have bought at least half of all his stuff...
