Björn Weckström is a Finnish sculptor and jewellery designer, who has worked for Lapponia Jewelry since 1963. In the 1960s there was a radical movement to liberate society--to have the freedom to express one's self. Designers were communicating this freedom through their creations; the strongest movement coming from the Scandinavian countries. The gold nuggets that Björn Weckström found in Lapland in the early 1960s were the start of an entirely new jewellery design, a design inspired by nature. A forerunner in his field, the artist breaks the traditional concepts of jewellery design by boldly combining different materials. Weckström is playing with natural forms, uncut gems and broken uneven surfaces, keeping as close to nature as possible. For Björn Weckström, a piece of jewellery is a miniature sculpture with a human background. As a sculptor he has enhanced the appreciation and respect of jewellery design as an art form in itself. He casts his jewellery models in plaster as three-dimensional forms. This creates the spontaneous element of each item - a freshness that is normally only possible for unique pieces. Weckström has received numerous awards for his design, including the Lunning Prize.
