Small worlds in Silver; the work of Christer Jönsson

At an exhibition I came across this series of brooches brilliantly crafted by the Swedish silversmith/craftsman Christer Jönsson.

Each is a strange little asymmetrical world in itself- or rather a little stage- of intertwining branches of silver and gold from which hang little minature figures and ornaments. They are like little worlds, with bats and skulls and skeletons, comedy and tragedy masks and marionette-like human figures in flat silver.
