Valtteri Lonka


A skill in handcrafts have guided my choice of career. To begin with I graduated as a stonesmith after which I studied to become goldsmith and gemmologist.

I was recruited by Atelier Torbjörn Tillander straight after my graduation in 1991 and I've worked here ever since. Although my hair is turning grey, I am still inspired by work that is challenging and varied. I believe that manufacturing unique and individual jewellery from the beginning to the end will continue to inspire me and keep me in the trade for the remaining 30 years of my career.
