This bangle is made in Stockholm Sweden in 1954. It is marked "handwork" and makersmark. It also has the Swedish silver stamp. There are three applegreen stones with a large one in the middle. I believe that the stones might be Chrysoprase. This piece surprised me when I first saw it, it doesn´t look Swedish. It has some folklore to it and I find it to be a bit like a revolt against the modern. I usualy like more simple, finer lines but sometimes it's nice to be a little wild and crazy, like the silversmith demonstrated here.
I have a lot of work ahead of me, oxidation has a whole new meaning to me now. In the third photo from the left I´ve managed to get some of it off. It needs more work but underneath there is a beauty waiting to be reviled, I think. I hope you can see it too :-)
