Description

This Lapponia Flame Bronze pendant/brooch was made circa 1974 by leading Finnish designer Björn Weckström for Lapponia. It has an industrial, brutalist style and is called ‘Daytona’. The name ‘Flame Bronze’ refers to the dark purple-blue-grey finish, which was very difficult to achieve. You can see the evidence on this pendant. The series was only produced for a short while in the 1970s and the flame (or fire) bronze finish was not used on later pieces. 

The pendant/brooch is stamped 'Lapponia Bjorn Finland' and has a very clever adjustable chain.

Bjorn Weckström (1935 -) is a leading Finnish designer world renown for his jewellery designs for Lapponia often inspired by forms in nature. He developed a distinctive sculptural look to to his work which has received international acclaim. He has had over 60 exhibitions of his work worldwide. Examples of his work can be found in museums such as the V&A in London and Museum of Modern Art in Boston.

FAQORDER FAQs

Do you offer layaway? Can I pay in instalments?

Yes! We have different ways of doing layaways. Paypal is most popular or via bank transfer. We try to be as flexible as possible, so if you tell us what you need, we will agree the layaway terms on a case by case basis with you. We usually offer a paypal invoice over the period of 3 months, but can happily extend to 6 months if needed. We do not charge interest for instalment payments. Paypal invoice allows you to pay a partial payment whenever is convenient for you.


A 20% up front, non refundable, deposit is required to hold the item, and this counts towards the item total. Payment is then made over the following weeks and the final payment must be made by the agreed end date.


Please note, items bought on layaway are returnable, but the deposit is non refundable. Items are shipped once payment is completed. If payment is not made within the agreed time frame, we will try to work with you to agree a solution, but reserve the right to refund your money (bar the deposit) and re-list the item Please contact us directly to discuss further.
