viilu jewelry is part of Kuule mua! (Hear me!) campaign! From every valo & varjo earrings sold, we donate 20 % to the Family Federation of Finland to support equal sexual rights in Finland and globally.

The campaign makes room for those voices that are unheard. One of the long-term listeners is Poikien Puhelin, a free of charge phone and chat service in Finland, to whom especially boys under 20 can call. The service provides professional information on everyday life and sexuality, corrects misunderstandings and talks boldly about emotions and the interests of boys. The professional team supports the diversity of being a boy and tells them every day that they are OK just the way they are.

Last year, the team received almost 47 000 calls. They can only answer to a quarter of those calls. Tens of thousands voices remain unheard. With the support of this campaign the service would be able to keep open during holidays, for instance, Christmas.
The campaign runs until January 2nd 2019.

'Light plays with shadow
like cheerful children.
In light and on the edge of shadow
we are searching our happiness
under the sky, on the ground.'

valo & varjo means light and shadow. valo & varjo earrings are really light and like sculptures, that you can wear. The earrings are delivered with the back part, that you can attach them to your ears. Wood is finished with natural oils.

Wood is a living material and every piece has its own color and texture. It means, that the texture and color can be little different from piece to piece. Dark color of smoked oak is a natural chemical reaction, that is possible because of the high tannin content of oak. Our jewelry is made by hand. This way we want to honor the material and give a hand made touch to it. Like every tree, every piece of wood has its own character and story to tell.

valo & varjo collection is all hand made.
The size can vary.

Origin and history of the product

The whole production of the valo & varjo collection is hand made at our studio. The origin of the wood we use: maple – Finland, oak – Germany. We use only European wood.

Our silver parts are 100% recycled silver. Recycled silver has same characteristics as 925 silver, which is normally used in jewelry and is non-toxic and nickel free. The manufacturer of recycled silver gives a certificate of the silver’s origin.

Take care of the product

Wood is sensitive material, but can be maintained beautiful with a little care. Avoid contact with water, this way your viilu jewelry will last long. If the wood had contact with water or has some scratches, you can oil it with natural oils for example sunflower oil or canola oil.

Silver tarnish and creates a patina with a time, because of exposure to oxygen and chemicals in the air and in different beauty products. Tarnishing process is slower the more you wear the jewelry. If the jewelry gets a patina, you can brighten it with a polishing cloth.
