The Sibelius monument was created half a century ago. It took six years to finish. Its sculptor, Eila Hiltunen, knew she was on to something timeless, something eternal.
Now this work of art, impressive as a jewel, has been brought to life by Master Jeweller Mika Tarkkanen in his Monument collection. The silver jewellery in this collection radiates the same passion and timeless spirit as its steel monument inspiration.
The beloved Sibelius monument is reborn. Just like the Sibelius monument itself, Monument jewellery designs are inspired by a desire to create something special, beautiful and lasting.
The Monument is finally finished.
The official jewellery of the Finland 100 celebrations in 2017 is born.
I forged this jewellery collection as my monument to mark Finland’s 100 years of independence in 2017. We are also a Finland 100 partner company and are involved in the year’s events.
The Monument collection gave me the opportunity to explore my relationship with Sibelius and Eila Hiltunen’s Sibelius monument, for which I’m grateful.
