Bjorn Weckstrom Cassiopeia bracelet
by: Lapponia, Finland
designer: Bjorn Weckstrom, 1976
material: sterling silver
size: 7" x 5/8"
Sculptor, painter, goldsmith, sailor - Weckstrom is the consummate artist. While sharing his countrymen’s artistic ethos, his works in jewellery are quite singular. This vintage bracelet certainly qualifies as a small work of sculpture while bearing all the hallmarks of the work of a true craftsman: each deeply ridged and folded segment is beautifully cast, finished and joined to its neighbour. The most exquisite and well executed feature, however, is its subtly-mounted, almost invisible mechanical clasp.
