Necklace, Jungle Scenery 2, from the Jungle collection
Tolvanen combines ivywood, prasiolite, silver, and paint to evoke feelings of both harmony and discord in this organically shaped necklace. The delicate prasiolite is anchored to the ivywood in a manner that is both strong and tenuous. The pale green coloring of the piece suggests both a connection to nature and a cool detachment from its expected representation.
