Intro
We are happy to invite two artists from Gothenburg, Sweden. For several years we have seen many great jewellery artists graduating from HDK Academy of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg and both Linnéa Eriksson and Jelizaveta Suska are among them. The two artists should belong to the younger generation jewellery artists whose work are playful, experimental and at same time easily wearable. Even if it wasn’t long ago they graduated, they both have exhibited frequently, for example at Gallery Four in Gothenburg which was awarded the Dynamo Grant from the Art Grants Committee in Sweden this autumn.

Artist list

Linnéa Eriksson, Jelizaveta Suska
Jelizaveta Suska got the Herbert Hofmann Prize 2016 as well as Amberif Award, Amber prize.
She was born in Latvia where she studied metal design, Art Academy of Latvia, Riga. She also studied jewelry design, HAWK, Hildesheim, Germany and one semester at Hiko Mizuno College of Jewelry, Tokyo, Japan. At first sight, Jelizaveta Suska’s work looks frozen, as it was made of ice, but that is just an illusion. The artist tells us:

Frozen Moment pieces are a lot about feelings of nostalgia, of a moment in time. In my work, I was looking for materialization of these abstract matters. I based it on associations and feelings. After a period of research, I came up with my own material that the pieces are made of. This material has two main compounds: polymer, that is light and transparent, just like 'a moment' and crushed marble, that creates an illusion of a solid stone which I associate with a feeling of nostalgia. In the beginning of crafting each piece, material is hot and dynamic but in a while it turns still. Like a metaphor of a moment becoming a memory.


Linnéa Eriksson has also studied one semester at RISD, Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, USA and until 2017, she studies goldsmithing at YH-Goldsmith Education center in Falköping, Sweden. When asking Linnéa Eriksson what she is working on, she says:

My work is a reflection of my surroundings, and my creativity has its origin in the urban - in the rough surface of the city and in the structured geometric. I find my inspiration in pieces of metal, in the feeling of a heavy beat, and in an explosion of color from within the spray cans. It is in a combination of traditional jewellery crafts and the modern street expression that my jewellery finds its charge, and subjects such as family history and the need to belong is constantly recurring in my artistic work.
