I never came across Hannu Ikonen pieces but at a childrens flea market two weeks ago I found 5 pieces.
Between all the old toys, clothes and games there was one stallholder selling a lot of old jewelry for small prices.
I paid for the lot € 5,00 in total. They all are marked Made in Finland.
More info on Hannu Ikonen:
Hannu Ikonen’s refined and striking designs have become iconic in the world of modernist jewelry. Ikonen worked in both silver and bronze, producing for the Finnish firm of Valo-Koru throughout the seventies. His famous “Renmoosblüte” or Reindeer moss pieces in many ways perfectly embody the new Finnish impulse in jewelry making in their sculptural quality and modern interpretation of a natural theme. The Ikonen designed bronze pieces were typically marked in MADE IN FINLAND with no other hallmarks. The reindeer moss design element in its typical 3-D, sculptural details is a signature by itself.
