ABOUT


Anni Lehtonen is  Finnish jewellery designer and maker. She has made her Jewellery and Precious Metalwork Design degree in Savonia University of Applied Sciences in Kuopio, Finland.

My style is traditional Nordic design with a twist. In my designs I like to combine shapes from traditional Scandinavian jewellery with unexpected materials like salmon leather and resin.
