Intro
(...) Platina has chosen pieces by Swedish and international jewellery designers who have something else to show us. Their work tells about our everyday life, our thoughts, our destinies and our bodies, but also give us chills and hair-raising experiences. (...)
For the summer of 2007, Gallery NIVÅ125 BÅSTAD has invited Platina to curate an exhibit called "Enter Platina Jewellery", during the period from June 1st to July 15th. 

With this exhibit, Platina intends to offer each visitor an experience transcending the ordinary in the art of jewellery. Here you will not find common, mass-produced jewellery, intended for necks or lapels. Instead, our door will open into the finest and holiest room in the world of jewellery.
This time Platina has chosen pieces by Swedish and international jewellery designers who have something else to show us. Their work tells about our everyday life, our thoughts, our destinies and our bodies, but also give us chills and hair-raising experiences.

When visitors have parked Ted Noten's Mercedes Benz next to Maya Kini's houses, taken the first step over the threshold, stepped into the hall and continued through all the rooms in the building and out again onto the terrace, they will have been able to:
- prod and squeeze Iris Eichenberg's heart,
- eat Anna Atterling's pralines/bonbons, and Sam Tho Duong's cherries with - -- Monika Strasser's ENORMOUSLY beautiful jewellery made of silverware.
Visitors will have noticed how their blood can drop from Sissi Westerberg's pocket, will have come out of Auli Laitinen's closet, gone to the lady's room with Charlotte Sinding, used Lucia Vogt's combs and washed their hands with Celio Braga's decorated body soaps. Furthermore, Ulrika Swärd recounts the price of gold.
