From the Coolest Corner- Nordic Jewellery

The latest showcase at Estonian Museum of Applied and Design presents groundbreaking and fresh jewellery from Northern Europe, a comprehensive selection of 159 works by 61 artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Estonia. 

Go there to see how contemporary jewellery crosses the borders and explore pieces for which wearability is often the least important requirement. 

The exhibition is open in Tallinn until May 11, then it will move on to Gothenburg and Munich

Note that these earrings and brooches have been carved from one piece of  quartz, nothing  is compounded in any way.

Unfortunately I don't remember artists of the next two pieces below

 Margaret Sandström, Sweden

And last but not least, a neckpiece made of used plasticbags. I wouldn't have told!
