I just listed a great brooch by the Finnish design firm of Aarikka. A family run company, Aarikka was founded in 1954 by Kaija Aarikka and her husband. Much of the jewelry they created was made from wooden beads in modernist arrangements.
Big and bold this kinetic brooch with red wood beads is truly a statement piece. Jewelry from mid 20th century Finland tends to define the modernist trend in that part of the world and beyond. Sleek and very architectural the Finns had a knack for expressing a clear modern sensibility.
