The roots of Festive jewellery go back to the 1940s, when young Helge Narsakka was apprenticed to Tillander's goldsmith in Helsinki. This was the beginning of the fire for handmade jewellery and especially the enthusiasm for the profession of goldsmith. Helge began to pass on this traditional trade from father to son by teaching goldsmithing to his two sons, Osmo and Timo.
Today, that traditional goldsmithing knowledge and skill, refined over decades, is carried on by Helge's three grandsons and one great-grandson. Altogether, the goldsmith's workshop of Kultasepät Narsakka Oy currently employs ten goldsmiths.
All the experience of past generations of traditional goldsmiths combined with the modern vision and technical know-how of new generations produces a stunning result. A piece of jewellery that will last from generation to generation.
"It's been a privilege to learn from your own father and grandfather - you can't get that kind of knowledge and skill anywhere else, not from books or schools."Thomas NarsakkaGoldsmith - Goldsmiths Narsakka Oy
