Pitu Woodellery represents a rare craft. The jewelry is made of wood by knife rolling or hand turning. In all wood jewelry, the only fully mechanical work step is drilling a hole for the jewelry spike. Quite pure handicraft, therefore.
Made of Finnish wood
Pitu Woodellery jewelry includes birch, ash and pine. Wood is a surplus of Finnish carpenters, so even small pieces of valuable wood can be used to advantage.
"I use domestic materials and especially traditional methods of making wooden jewelery, some of the jewelery is turned by hand, some is poured with a knife. Each wooden material has its own unique characteristics, so it is very important to know the materials and manufacturing methods."
The most beautiful is naturalness
Pitu Woodellery's design respects its material. The products show the color and causes of the wood and the individuality of each piece. Kthe valleys receive only colorless, food-grade oil or natural wax.
"We want these products to be truly ecological. That they exude traditional and skillful craftsmanship because that's what they are. Rare skills that many no longer have."
The jewelry is made by Pitja Simi in Oulais.
