Vivianna Torun Bulow-Hube was one of the pre-eminent Scandinavian jewellery designers of her generation. Torun designed 'anti-status jewellery' out of twisted silver with crystals and stones to be worn, rather than 'locked up' by husbands in bank safes. In 1960 she was awarded a gold medal at the Milan Triennial and also won the American Lunning Prize for design. In 1992 she was awarded the Prince Eugen medal by King Carl XVI of Sweden for outstanding artistic achievement. Many celebrities wore her jewellery in the 1950s and 1960s including Billie Holiday, Ingrid Bergman and Brigitte Bardot and customers included Pablo Picasso and Duke Ellington.
