Artist list

Helena Sandström
The fragility of the material was the starting point for Helena Sandström’s necklace made of shells from hens’ eggs. The eggs were broken carefully, and many failed attempts were made before achieving the optimum floral shape and size. The eggshells were attached to a thin wire of pure gold, which is very soft. The fragile necklace must be handled with the utmost care, like life itself. This was a ground breaking acquisition for Nationalmuseum in 1999, and has since become an icon in the collections.
