In 1875, Johanna completed her garniture with two hairpins and a bracelet from the Gustaf Möllenborg jewellers in Stockholm. The gold bracelet is essentially a simple moulded piece but has been decorated with a kind of filigree with spiral twisted gold threads and small embellishments – a so-called cannetille. The hairpins were made in the same style as the rest of the garniture.
