The Best Of Björn -exhibition brings selected works of jewellery designer and sculptor Björn Weckström to Lapponia jewellery´s flagship store in Helsinki.
Björn Weckström is one of the most famous Finnish and internationally well known jewelry designer. He has designed more than 1 500 pieces of contemporary jewelry to Lapponia Jewelry collections.
Weckström has created sculptural gold and silver items over half a century to Lapponia, and some of them have been already in collection in the 1960’s. The inspiration to his works comes from the rugged beauty of Nordic nature, winter and ice. Björn Weckström´s collections were considered revolutionary already decades ago.
One significant milestone for his career was the cooperation with George Lucas in the Star Wars movies. The famous creations worn by Princess Leia in the movie are Planetoid Valleys necklace and Darina’s bracelet – two jewelry pieces from the Lapponia´s Space Silver collection. These two jewelry items are still available in Lapponia’s collection of today.
The Best Of Björn jewelry exhibition takes place at the Lapponia Jewelry Flagship Store in Helsinki. A couple of jewelry rarities of the exhibition are also for sale.
The exhibition is open until January 31st. Free entrance.
