Rein Mets. Necklace. Angela.1973. Silver, iron nails.
The avant-garde movement in Estonian art during the 1960s left its imprints on jewellery, as well. The turn toward the meaningful side of jewellery brought along diversity in the approach to materials. The jewellery pieces with symbolist images by Rein Mets and Jüri Arrak were remarkable, yet exceptional in the jewellery art of the 1970s.
