This Kalevala piece was inspired by jewellery dating back to the 12th century. The Filigree pearl necklace was part of a valuable treasure found in Halikko, Joensuu, Finland, together with three silver cross pendants. The treasure had been hidden in the ground in a rough clay pot when Finland was becoming a Christian country, about 800 years ago. The treasure may have been hidden by a priest, who wanted to save the valuables from pagan Finns, or church robbers who stashed their loot – no one knows. In any case, the treasure tells of turbulent times, a transition period that set Finland in a new direction.
