Statement

My jewellery designs are characterised by the well-known Nordic simplicity, and yet the design is entirely its own. The Nordic tradition is artfully broken by contrasting materials, innovative use or a background story with a touch of humour.

About urban Brooches:
An interactive experiment with the traditional concept of the brooch.
I perceive brooches, alias medals, decorations, badges, and ordinary brooches, as a medium to tell the world about attitudes, activities and status. Just as graffiti in public spaces and embroidered pictures with God's word and sayings in the home.
 
The concept URBAN BROOCH invites people to actively participate in the making of a brooch.
I have made in 18krt gold an exact copy of an embroidery needle. The gold needle and embroidery yarn is ready to embroider with on the clothes hanging on the exhibition.
Jackets and shirts are hanging like empty canvases and will during the exhibition be embroidered on with poetry, graffiti statements or ornaments as a wall in the townscape. Everything is free to do.
 
The experiment invites to decide whether the brooch is ornamental, statement or vandalism. To embroider takes time and to do it with a gold needle makes the act itself become precious jewellery. This is a statement in itself.
