Midweek Modness: Sten & Laine Rock Crystal Pendant

On my Monday amblings, I also picked up a Sten & Laine sterling silver rock crystal pendant. I’ve written about these Finnish designers before, but to recap, the Sten & Laine workshop was based in Turku, Finland and the partnership 1969 continued until 1982. I was trying to figure out when exactly this design was made, when I came across a similar pendant (except that it was round). It turns out you can attribute this design directly to Karl Laine because it has a tiny KL carved into the side (click on picture below).

It’s a real find and now my Sten & Laine ring (pictured in the logo at the top of the website) has a friend from home.
