LAKE

The Järvi series portrays ripples on water’s surface and the forms of the bed that streaming water has left behind. The clarity and richness of body of water is reflected on the enamel and gold leaf, showing the colours of nature.

Järvi brooch 7/10 | glazed porcelain, gold leaf, brass, wire

I feel at home near the waters, and water as an element captivates and inspires me. The Järvi series (Järvi is Finnish for lake) is homage to the rich bodies of water of Finland. This series was born as a study from my first jewellery design ever, a brooch I made to my grandmother in 1995. The brooch is made from painted porcelain.

Grandmother’s brooch is like Granny Manninen herself was, bright green and sunny yellow, like her soul. The original brooch was returned to me after Grandmother passed away in 2012. Nowadays I wear it on important occasions and on Day of Jewellery.
