As if he saw her
for the first time: music, dreams,
brass on copper curls
Bride crown in brass and silver, sold to Nordiska Museet (Stockholm) in 1924. Originates from Norra Finnskoga, Höljes, in the county of Värmland. I like the simple and (in my view) contemporary look. I wish I could see the bride(s) who once wore it, hear the sound of the crown in movement. How did their lives unfold after the wedding?
Inspired by online jewellery collections, I occasionally introduce an image together with a few words. I call it Storytime, because I beleive that jewellery carry so many stories. You are more than welcome to add your own poem, words or thoughts in a comment, be my guest!
