Scandinavian studio jewelry is inconceivable without her and her works. As early as the beginning of the 1960s Tone Vigeland’s jewelry objects were routinely included in what are today legendary publications and exhibitions, such as the International Exhibition of Modern Jewellery held 1961 in the Goldsmiths Hall London, which first familiarized the public with the emerging art style of studio jewelry. Now, to mark her 80th birthday, Die Neue Sammlung is devoting its first solo exhibition in Europe outside Scandinavia to the grand dame of Scandinavian studio jewelry - 50 years after Vigeland’s first solo exhibition in 1967 in the Kunstnerneshus in Oslo.
