This necklace is absolutely perfect! I waited for about 2 years for one like this to come up for sale, and when I finally found one I was ridiculously happy! This seller is amazing, she reserved it for me, answered all my questions, and described the necklace perfectly. I hope to buy from her again!

Bold, sculptural jewelry designed in Scandinavia.

Hopea's collection focuses on mid-century Scandinavian design jewelry from the 1960s and 70s. The unique pieces from this era have retained their integrity and remain both collectible and wearable.

The makers often differ dramatically in their aesthetic; the quirky abstractions of Jorma Laine, the sculptural creations of Björn Weckström, naturalistic abstractions by Liisa Vitali. Their commonality lies in the way in which they pushed beyond the boundaries of Nordic jewelry making of the time.

The pieces are carefully chosen and we hope they will appeal to design lovers, collectors as well as those simply looking for jewelry of distinctive quality.

A note about customs: US orders are not subject to Canadian taxes but we are unable to determine the duty and taxes that may be charged by the US and other foreign customs offices. As a result it is the customer’s responsibility to cover any and all customs charges that may apply to their order. When orders shipped internationally reach the destination country, they may be subject to customs clearance procedures which can cause delays beyond original delivery estimates. We cannot know the reasons or length of time that certain parcels may be detained at customs.
