Frank and Regine Juhls have maintained a silver workshop in the north of Norway since the 1950s. Their work reflects their experience there, particularly pieces from Regine’s “Tundra” series, which draw inspiration from many natural elements. Bones, stones, lichen and, in her own words, “the eternal wasteland of the arctic” are all invoked in this magnificent and intricately constructed necklace.
As a point of interest, some of the Tundra pieces were shown at Expo ‘67, the World’s Fair in Montreal, Canada.
