Long ago, in the Finnish province now known as Häme, a powerful woman wore multi-strand bronze chains, known as the "Häme festive necklace". The chains linked two plates, shaped like church vaults, on which two peacocks guarded the Holy Grail. We do not know what the symbol of paradise in early Christian art, immortalised in the piece of jewelry, signified for the wearer. Maybe the long-necked birds brought her luck. Maybe they were messengers between people and gods. Maybe something else known to her only. One thing is certain, she believed that the jewelry had hidden power. That power is still there.

The pendant is modelled on the chain holders in the necklace – the “Häme festive necklace” – dating back to around 800 AD and found in Kernaala, Janakkala.
