Please handle the earrings with care as no repair service is available for them. Avoid exposing the earrings to moisture: do not swim or bathe wearing them or storage them in a humid place.

The Ähtävä Earrings made of Finnish plywood are a new fresh interpretation of an old classic. The plywood earrings glowing in summery colors are considerably larger than the original, yet delightfully light to wear. The metal parts of the earrings are silver. The Ähtävä earrings are based on a bronze pendant found in Ähtävä, Ostrobothnia, dating back to the 7th century AD. The pendant consisting of three excentric loops is unique among prehistoric finds in Finland, and it is of Eastern Russian origin. Inspired by the pendant Germund Paaer (1881–1950) designed a pair of earrings that were made of silver and bronze from the 1940s all the way to the early 2000s.
