Kuusamo Ax story:
This piece of jewellery was inspired by a large silver plate pendant in the shape of an axe, which was found in the village of Lämsä, Kuusamo, Finland, as part of a silver treasure hidden in the ground. The piece dates back to the time of the Crusades, between 1050 and 1150 AD. It was a time of both prosperity and turbulent events, and treasures were buried to prevent them from being stolen. The surface of the piece was embellished with several images, which suggests that it may have been made in Karelia.
