Another find from flea market. This Karelian Plaited ribbon motif is manufactured by Kalevala Koru Finland. This piece of jewelry is a model of Karelia Crusades 1100-1300 AD.

    Great to have the original box too! Nice!

    The connector ring that the pendant hangs from looks like Petty Sarpaneva's work, and he made pieces for Kalevala Koru in the 70s if I'm not mistaken.

    Did you mean Pentti Sarpaneva he was glass -and jewelry designer. Also Timo Sarpaneva's big brother, well-known art glass designer from Iittala glassworks.
    But, this jewelry is nothing to do with Pentti Sarpaneva, the modell is almost 900 years old. Kalevala Koru inc. uses lot this type of connector rings.
