valo & varjo means light and shadow. The arrangement of curved elements create an interesting play of light and shadow. This is further enhanced by the combination of light maple and dark oak. The form of the earrings is inspired by nut shells. Instead of being completely closed, they are slightly open from the sides to let the light shine through them. valo & varjo are small and light sculptures, that you can wear.
The earrings are working like stud earrings and are delivered with the back part, that you can attach them to your ears. Wooden parts are attached to flexible chains. Wood is finished with natural oils.
valo & varjo collection has been awarded with FORM2018 design award.
