In the last week of June 2024, Lisbon hosted the second edition of the Contemporary Jewellery Biennial with several exhibitions around the city, a symposium, talks and other events. The title of the event was Madrugada (Daybreak), inspired by a famous poem by Sophia de Melo Breyner.

In the beginning of 2023, I was invited to participate in the project Generation Why, curated by Marcia Harvey Isaksson (SE), Vidar Koksvik (NO) and Charlotte Jul (DK). The first exhibition took place in Risør in Norway the following summer and in March 2024 it was shown at Rundetaarn in Copenhagen. The exhibition will then move on to the Rian Design Museum in Falkenberg in 2025.

On the 7th of November the exhibition “Hug a tree” opened at Platina in Stockholm.
I’ve always loved the forest. For as long as I can remember it has been a place for adventures, treasures, fantasies and magic. You can hug a tree if you want to save it or if you are lost and need comfort.

About a year ago I was invited to take part of a project curated by Elsa Vanier. The task was to interpret a famous painting, and I found a portrait of a wounded man with a fur cap.

DNA, deoxyribonucleic acid is molecules containing our genetic information. Information about our past and information about our future. Is there an artistic DNA? Can DNA become visible through our work, and if so, how does it manifest itself in contemporary jewellery?

Hello. Hej hej! Hello? Can you hear me?
Voices can be heard in the noise of the cities, behind the rustling treetops, over the seas and under the surface. If you listen carefully they might have something to tell you. 

This year’s Schmuck was special. It took place in the middle of the summer for the first place which made the city look completely different than what I’m used to. But it was also very special for me since I had been selected for the special Schmuck show for the first time.  When I got […]

Midsommarafton/Midsummer eve is a tradition celebrated at the end of June when the hours of sunlight reaches its peak. During the day there is dancing, an overload of flower decorations and food. The celebration often turns into an almost hedonic party and the light midsummer night is filled with magic, romantic and even erotic myths. It’s a night of adventures, beauty, nature and of course – jewellery!

Fake news, social networks, and different conspiracies – it is difficult to know what is correct, what is true, and if there is truly only one truth. On May 13 the exhibition The Truth – Mine and Yours opened at the Geological Museum in Ramat Hasharon.

Not Quite is a cultural centre located in an old paper mill in Fengersfors. The beautiful brick buildings there are surrounded by forests and lakes with a magical shimmer. During the summer 2022 Sofia Björkman and I got the opportunity to show our exhibition Bird, fish or somewhere in between here.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved fish. The fish theme has followed me and it has developed in different directions. At Kaleido I showed both new and older works. The common denominator is the repetitions and rhythms.

I was invited to make an exhibition at Galerie Spektrum. The gallery was founded in 1981 by Marianne Schliwinski and Jürgen Eickhoff and it has played an important part in the history of contemporary jewellery and will most likely do so even in the future.

“Iigo lea?” means “right?”, in Swedish “eller hur?” . It is an expression used to confirm consensus and it was the first Sami expression I picked up. Monica Blind Påve and I chose to give the exhibition At Norrbottens Museum the title Iigo lea because we think the expression describes our collaboration in a good way.

PARCOURS BIJOUX is an event entirely dedicated to Jewellery. In October 2020 it took place for the third time with events all over Paris. One of them is Bird Fish or Somewhere in Between with work by Sofia Björkman and me and another was Ocean 2050 at Galerie Elsa Vanier.

Last year Monica Blind Påve and I were invited by Anna Sjöberg and Sámi Duodji to make a cooperation project. Monica is a Sami artist from Övre Soppero and in the frame of this project she has been visiting my studio in Göteborg and I have also been working with her in Övre Soppero. We have been sharing experiences both from our art and craft practice and from life in general, and we have also made some new discoveries together. It’s been a fantastic journey including long rides in trains and cars, swimming in rivers, lots of laughs, craft and new friends.

A library for art jewellery – this genius idea has become a reality thanks to Rian Design Museum. The first 20 pieces are already there and will soon be available to borrow.

Every year Svensk Form selects a Formbärare in each of their 13 districts. This year I was selected for this honourable title by Svensk Form Västerbotten.

Hanna Liljenberg is not only one of my closest friends – our work also has many connections; repetitions, organic shapes and slow growing structures. The jewelry grows bit by bit. Paper pieces are folded and glued, plastic scales are mangled and stitched, but the lowest common denominator is probably the scissors and all the cuts.

Sopor är bra – garbage is good. That is the name of an exhibition at Rian Design Museum that opened on September 14. The exhibition shows garbage in a new shape. Garbage that dresses our bodies, decorates our homes and that occupies our thoughts.

Amina Rizwan is the professor at the Pakistan Institute of Fashion & Design in Lahore. She is one of those people you know you really like after just talking to them a couple of seconds and when she suggested that I should come and teach a workshop at the school I said yes without hesitation.

The Triple Parade is a jewellery event taking place every second year in Shanghai. This year 89 artists has been selected for the exhibition “Intimate Encounter” opening at the How Art Museum on Friday 19th October 2018.

Every year Fondazione Cominelli toghether with AJC – Contemporary Jewellery Association, has on open call inviting artists to apply for the Cominelli Award. This year the theme was ”A jewel of a Lake” and my piece A New Fresh Pearl was selected for the exhibition.

Some weeks ago I got the very happy news that my necklace, Skinny Love V, had been selected as one of the pieces that will be considered for the Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery.

During the fourth edition of the international biennial Melting Point in Valencia many exhibitions, conferences and events took place – among them were the two exhibitions ”If it was blue as the sky, we would love each other” and “Platina for Pleasure”

Finally Easter – enjoy the eggs!

The exhibition “Give it Time” explore the various ways in which craft is experienced, the focus is time – daily rhythms, the momentary, and the on-going.

Back after a week of incredible pieces and exhibitions, fun happenings and above all this irresistible group of colleagues and friends that makes the jewellery world such a unique place.

European Triennial of Contemporary Jewellery – an exhibition where wearable objects with a wide range of materials, techniques and expressions, gives you personal and unique interpretations of our time.

  Some time ago I was invited to make a workshop at the art and design school Beirut Creative Space. The school offers courses to students who can’t afford the, often expensive, design courses available in Lebanon. The students come from different parts of the country and also from refugee camps. The criteria to get […]

Some ingredients are essential to make work. A mix of interesting ideas, good materials, supportive colleagues, energy giving snacks, the right tools at the right time and then SMACK! There you have it!

After working together for nearly ten years my, Hanna Liljenberg’s and Linnéa Eriksson’s different individual expressions has influenced each other. Now we are letting Galleri Koch and you – the visitors – to make an impression.

Easter 2017

24 pigs while waiting for Christmas.

Imagine if Wilhelmina von Hallwyl had been alive today, and able to develop her collection and interest in art.

Easter 2016

The Nobel Jewellery Prize was introduced in 2010 by Diagonal Art Projects. Since then the prize has been awarded five times to intelligent, creative and innovative jewellers.

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas – just like the ones I used to know”

    Frazzled thoughts stained with red wine in the middle of a creative chaos of paint and brushes. Isn’t it odd that old prejudice of past time artists are still prevailing? At the same time the image of the artist is in constant change. Through today’s social media the windows are wide open to […]

Trophy, necklace by Tanel Veenre. Model Sofie Gillstedt Alkemisterna – the Alchemists – is Diagonal’s idea for a tv-show about art jewellery. We have made a pilot episode to present the subject and the topics we want the future tv-show to highlight. The purpose of the tv-show is to increase the interest for craft and […]

The concept of Carrots and Carats is that we invite an artist for three-course dinner where the food is inspired by the artist’s work. By using the dishes as a starting-points we ask questions that leads to discussions about artistry, work, economy and inspiration.

We invited 11 artists to give their reflection about our society view of what Swedish women are like today.
