About us

Our company - ByVellamo

The name byVellamo is inspired by Finnish mythology.

Vellamo comes from the Finnish goddess of water, lakes and seas. She is told to be a beautiful and tall lady. Respected by fishermen who prayed to her for good fishing luck. Vellamo can also control the winds to help sailors and control the storms and waves. Vellamo has magical cows that live on underwater fields. Sometimes during the morning mist she brings her cattle above the surface to eat water hay. Vellamo wears a blue dress that is made from sea foam.

During one of many travels, our designer has been fascinated by Venice and the handcrafted Venetian glass on the island of Murano. Most of the jewelry on this website is made with original glass beads from Venice. The long history of the glass makers factories and the shine and elegance of the beads have inspired the Venezia Collection, a collection for the modern, but at the same time sophisticated and mysterious woman.
