    Lisa Björke   Pernilla Persson   Karin Roy Andersson   Hanna Liljenberg   Sanna Svedestedt   As jewellery artists, our materials are our treasures. At the same time the materials we use are often considered non-precious by most people.

Elin Ryd

      In my recent work I have concentrated on the state of opposition; of being inside and outside, of being together and at the same time apart. These pieces try to communicate with each other, but they are always subjected to a kind of separation, they are together and yet still alone….   [...]

Ulrich Reithofer at Four

Ulrich Reithofer at Four

  I became a jeweler, because gold in its natural shape is little satisfying. The more I make, the more I see; the more I grasp, the more I love! My work is 3D poetry; autobiographic, pieces about: love, life the universe and all the rest.        Ulrich Reithofer has a direct and humoristic way of approaching [...]

“Sense – Mapping” Exhibition by Iris Eichenberg at Platina

"Sense - Mapping" Exhibition by Iris Eichenberg at Platina

  How is it that a color is able to evoke the sensations of has? And how does weight, not touched, not carried, trigger a strengthening of our muscles? And why would a visible, endless repetition of handling stretch the notion of time, and have a sound to it, and a rhythm still active after [...]


“[in]flux”, Necklace Series by Brice Garrett

"[in]flux", Necklace Series by Brice Garrett

  [in]flux We live in a current state of flux. Among the transitions come new unfamiliar spaces. It’s the position of being in-between the familiar and the foreign, amid the habitual and the uncertain. Familiarizing and acclimating in this state is a process stimulated by the sensorial. Among this state of flux, can jewellery contribute [...]

Alexander Blank, Tore Svensson and Despo Sophocleous – Schmuck 2012

Alexander Blank, Tore Svensson and Despo Sophocleous - Schmuck 2012

Alexander Blank Memento juniori!, Remember the youth times! Alexander Blank does not formulate the title of his work in a nostalgic way, but he slaughters the comic-heros of his childhood, and reduces up until the bones. Even if they look now like skelets, you can still recognize them: Koyote, the Duck, the Cat, the Bunny. [...]

“Forever Dead” Exhibition by Märta Mattsson at Platina

"Forever Dead" Exhibition by Märta Mattsson at Platina

    Märta Mattsson is not afraid of the repulsive; on the contrary, she sees beauty in the unpleasant. Fascinated by what we normally are disgusted by, she allows it to be material, processed and put into new contexts. Curiosity drives her to discover unexplored areas, finding alternatives to what is common. Like an 18th [...]


“Every Day”, Exhibition by Paula Lindblom at Sintra

"Every Day", Exhibition by Paula Lindblom at Sintra

    EVERY DAY – each day like the next, but not quite…. Humour, warmth and austerity – three words I associate with my jewellery. I experience colour and shape in almost everything in my surroundings. There is inspiration to be found in everything –  in a meeting, a shape, a feeling, a reflection, a movement, in [...]

Helena Lindholm at Platina

This is an exhibition but there is no title. The words are few but the content great. There are dreams and there are stories. There is jewelry with and without precious stones. There are various materials and much effort put in. There is value, which you determine yourself. There are no pre-determined prices. You set [...]


"Artefacts of life" Exhibition by Manon van Kouswijk at Platina

(…) The adornment of the human body is a primal urge that has created a flow of jewellery with endless symbolism. Jewellery is beautiful, it provides protection; it is economic security; shows status; carries memories and more. Jewellery refers to human and spiritual issues. The objects are often small in size but take the greater place [...]
