Scandinavian studio jewellery is simply unimaginable without Tone Vigeland (b. 1938) and her work. Her distinctive objects flatter the human body, captivate through their dimensions and volume, and yet are assembled from a variety of the tiniest hand-crafted components: tubes of silver wire, precisely cut plates, spheres and eyelets, all in small scale, are invisibly interconnected.  Around 130 jewellery objects from 1958 to 2010 document the pioneering creative work by Tone Vigeland and are complemented with a selection of objects and sculptures from 1998 to the present day.
