Lehti means leaf. Lehti earrings have silver hooks, that work the same way like hanging earrings. The form language of the hooks are matching with the wooden leaf like forms. Each leaf is handmade, so the size can vary a little.
Wood is a living material and every piece has its own color and texture. It means, that the texture and color can be little different from piece to piece. The origin of the wood we use: pine – Finland, birch – Finland, oak – Germany.
viilu jewelry’s colored inner part is birch veneer, that is through-dyed. Compared to lacquer finishing, through-dyed wood will not loose its color when you are using it. The main ingredient used in coloring is water. The coloring is done in Finland. Here you find more information about the wood we use.
Our silver parts are 100% recycled silver, except the silver chains. The silver chains are from Italy.
Avoid contact with water, this way your viilu jewelry will last long. You can oil the wooden surface, if it has some scratches or has been in contact with water. Take a closer look into our care instructions.
The Lehti earrings are made by hand at our studio. This way we want to honor the material and give a hand made touch to it. The materials are carefully chosen. We use only certified European wood. We produce our jewelry as sustainable as possible.
Every viilu jewelry is delivered in a packaging, which is made of cardboard, outer part out of recycled cardboard. Our packaging contains no plastic and they are produced in Finland.
