Tone Vigeland is one of Norway’s most illustrious citizens as she is one of the world’s most cherished jewelry artists, and sculptresses. Coming from the famed Vigeland family of artists in Oslo, I introduced her Viking flavored jewelry to America in 1983 with a one person exhibition. She was an instant hit with everyone, from editors to consumers and collectors. I maintained a close relationship with her for many years, constantly showing her work, and acquiring as much of it as I could for my own private collection. See the blog post on this website for a more in depth portrait of this celebrated and world renown artist.
I have no idea how one would learn to make this tubular but never-ending doughnut of soft flexible silver “nuggets”. Weighing nearly a full pound of sterling silver, this masterpiece of Viking style and spirit, is so powerful. A major collectors item.
