    I was thrilled to find this piece today! I have only found jewelry by Hannu Ikonen at previous markets/thrift shops.

    "Jorma Laine (1930-2002) was a Finnish jewelry designer, whose work in bronze and silver (more seldom gold) is easily recognizable. He developed a style of his own, very modernistic and often abstract, throughout the 60’s and 70’s. He was born on the 10th of July 1930, as the only son to his working class parents. Already at a young age he was gifted, and spent most of his time drawing. After primary school he attended the renowned art college Turun Piirustuskoulu (Turku Art School). During his illustrious career he had his own company, Silver-Laine, but is perhaps best known for the designs he did for Turun Hopea. He also designed silver jewelry for Kultateollisuus. Later on, after a successful career in jewelry design, he retired to his cabin in the forest where he led a hermitlike life until his death by heart attack on the 27th of December 2002, 72 years old."

    Thanks for looking/loving, friends!

      Thanks, pops52! Modernist bronze jewelry was the "in thing" during the 1950s and 1960s.
