Bjorn Weckstrom "Monolith" Silver Necklace
Monolith by Bjorn Weckstrom for Lapponia Jewelry, 1973 design
This lux and oversized space-age necklace is the perfect event necklace. The sterling silver practically glows and the acrylic swirled with color makes this piece pop. It walks the fine line between formal and unfussy in the way that only New Yorkers have perfected.
Sculptor and jeweler Bjorn Weckstrom is one of the founders of the renowned Finnish jewelry house Lapponia. Weckstrom’s work is award winning, incredibly influential, and collectable.
“Jewelry wearers’ were, at first, very suspicious of using acrylic jewelry. It all changed one day, when Yoko Ono wore a silver and acrylic ring designed by me. The ring was bought for her by John Lennon.” – Bjorn Weckstrom.
