terhi tolvanen: contemporary jewelry
Amsterdam based, Finnish born contemporary jewelry designer Terhi Tolvanen is hands down my favorite. Her jewelry often incorporates wood pieces or other natural materials of gemstones and coral. Elevating the beauty found in nature, Tolvanen mixes forest branches of birch, hazel, rosemary, and heather with gemstones of agate, smoky quartz, aquamarine or ceramics.
Her textural work and color combinations are glorious! Inspired by mosses, fungi and toadstools that flourish on or near fallen trees she calls them the ‘jewelry’ of the forest.
Tolvanen's nature love in her design shows the splendid beauty in the world around us.
