In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a persons soul at its most vulnerable when dreaming. It was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep. Use this bird as a symbol of good luck, protection and happiness.

The curious designs of Pentti Sarpaneva brim with life. His large, dramatic pieces combine traditional themes of nature and Finnish culture. He was a graphic artist before he began to explore jewelry design. Influenced by the tumultuous natural landscape of Finland, he produced explosive designs based on natural elements such. Sarpaneva produced these creations under the firms of Turun Hopea and Kalevala Koru.
