Let's start with three thin bracelets:
I like the simple, geometric patterns and the patina they came with - it's not that I forgot to polish them!
This other bracelet I had as a gift after confirmation school at age 15. It suits a young girl as well as someone older, and the simple decoration feels timeless. The bracelet is no longer produced, but the ring with this pattern is still on the list. The prototype for this pattern has been found in archaeological digs in Western Finland.
The last piece is a brooch my mother gave me when I was already grown up, it was hers a long time before that:
Again, the brooch is no longer produced but a similar pattern is used for earrings. The manufacturer's website gives no information of the origin of the pattern, but it is obviously an old symbol.
This was my story for today's Vintage Thingies Thursday. Suzanne is hosting, and I hope her link list is getting longer!
