Unusual jewelry made of 1,000-year-old oak is on show in a new exhibition at the State Archeological Museum in Warsaw.

Entitled A Thousand Years in Necklaces, the exhibition features work by Anna Orska, an artist based in the western city of Poznań. Orska uses inventive techniques to make jewelry from unusual materials such as paper, ropes, coins and wood. In her new exhibition, Orska breathes new life into oak that comes from 10th-century embankments in Poznań’s historic neighborhood of Ostrów Tumski. Combined with stainless steel, the millennium-old wood has been turned into 12 unique necklaces that give museum visitors a new perspective on Poznań’s history.

The State Archeological Museum in Warsaw has organized the exhibition jointly with the Archeological Museum in Poznań.

Until Aug. 25
State Archeological Museum, 52 Długa St.
