Frank and Regine Juhls

In the 1950s, Frank & Regine Juhls homesteaded a studio in the wilderness of Northern Norway, home to the Sami or Lapp people. Much of the work from their early period shows the strong influence of the native Lapland jewellery style.

Later in the 1960’s, they came into their own unique style and produced some fine modernist pieces, both in handwrought and cast work techniques.

A 1970’s contemporary jewelry critic remarked:

“The death of tradition…has gone unmourned among contemporary designers. If there are still those who refuse to take new forms seriously, their voices are growing dimmer, and the young designers with new ideas have learned to ignore their criticism.”

Donald J. Willcox, 1970
