Liisa Vitali (1918-1987)
Liisa Vitali created her first handmade jewelry designs in a small workshop on the family farm in Somero Viluksela, Finland. Her interest in jewelry design began when she entered and won a small school competition. This first handcrafted jewelry set, consisting of a ring, necklace, and bracelets, marked the beginning of a succesful career as a designer. Within a few years, her designs, popularity spread throughout Europe and on to Asia, even garnering praise from Britain's Princess Margaret. At the height of production, Vitali became ill while traveling to promote her designs in Singapore and died soon after.
Enthusiasm for Vitali's mid-century modern jewelry designs has experienced a revival, prompting Finnish company Kultakeskus Oy, which specializes in production of precious metal designs, to begin reproducing a limited set of Vitali jewelry designs in 2009.
