An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment
Sølje, the traditional brooch worn on the Norwegian folk costume, Bunad, contains features that can be traced back to brooches from the Iron Age.
This is the smaller of my two birth gift Sølje. These smaller Sølje brooches are worn on Bunads that have undergarments with neck collars. It is used to close the garment in the neck. Bunads that have Sølje in the neck also have a larger Sølje brooch on the chest.
