Brutalist Jewellery - including Jacob Hull, Sarpaneva, Poul Warmind

Here is a collection of jewellery in the Brutalist style featuring Jacob Hull and others from Denmark , Finland, and Sweden.  The Danish pieces were made in base metal, silver or gold-plated, with a single pewter piece by Poul Warmind. Several are embellished with stones, mostly amethyst. The Finnish and Swedish pieces are all bronze. 

Brutalist is the term recently applied to the bold and rough designs of the 1960s and 1970s. 

It has been borrowed from 'Brutalist' architecture, a movement  that flourished from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century. The term does not derive from the word "brutal," but originates from the French béton brut, or "raw concrete," a term used by Le Corbusier to describe his choice of material. British architectural critic Reyner Banham adapted the term into "brutalism" (originally "New Brutalism") to identify the emerging style
