My intention is to mostly talk about jewelry. However, my recent trip to Estonia influenced my jewelry making in several ways — while I was there, I took some classes in traditional Estonian silversmithing, and came back with lots of design ideas. For example, the face of Kalevipoeg (the Estonain national hero) and the form of Thor’s hammer that appear in ‘Gallery’ both came from Estonia. Therefore, I’m going to ask your indulgence for a new-jewelry post. I’m going to share a few pictures of an underappreciated, truly beautiful corner of Europe.
