Bjorn Weckstrom is an internationally recognized sculptor/jeweler. He
won the Lunning Prize in 1968. His "sculptural cufflinks and
rings play with volumes and surfaces, alternating the light reflections on
shiny and matt silver." One of his space series pieces, a necklace titled
"Planetary Valleys" was worn by Princess Leila in the 1977 "Star Wars"
movie. Weckstrom's work has been featured in museum shows in many countries.
