A journey through Iceland reveals natural, primordial materials: hand-spun wool, horsehair, horn, reindeer antler, lava stone and driftwood. Hand- crafted objects- each unique in the world- are made-to-order by Iceland's foremost artists and artisans. Starkness, restraint and strength of design reflect the stunning raw landscapes of the country- at once ancient and yet utterly modern.
Sheep Horn and Horsehair Choker
Made from an adjustable braided horsehair cord with deep espresso-black sheep horn pulls. Sheep roam wild all spring and summer feasting on wild herbs and flowers in Iceland's mountainous highlands. Their horns are transformed into works of art by Iceland's foremost artisans.
Husband and wife artisans Páll Jensson Grenigerði and Rita Freyja Bach first met on top of a glacier in Iceland and have spent a lifetime together making museum-quality jewelry and accessories out of horn, reindeer antler and horsehair.
