In the Kalevala, the Finnish national epos, the Maiden of the North was a force to be reckoned with: strong, cunning, wise and skilled in all sorts of magic and charms. She could use those charms to lure any man she wanted to, but also to make women laugh, the winds blow and the sea howl.
These Maiden of the North pieces have been inspired by this legendary mythological woman and our ancestors’ intricate jewelry, buckles and knife handles. The Maiden of the North commanded respect and worked her magic with striking, precious pieces, and it is this spirit of the Kalevala that entrances us to this day.
Made of warmly glowing bronze, the braided ribbon ornaments of the Maiden of the North necklace are connected by four pea chains. The braided ribbon ornaments act as the necklace’s locking mechanism, and you can change the look of the necklace by locking the ornaments behind your neck, at the front or to the side.
