Malin Lövgren
Passion for jewellery, traditional craftsmanship and new techniques is the strong force that lies behind my creations. Contrasts, colours and choice of materials are constantly challenged and new creative avenues explored. Jewellery must compelling and evocative. And this is the spirit which I constant try to instil in my exclusive and timeless jewellery.

Karin Roy Andersson
”The joy of repetition really is on me” - Hot Chip
I am a long distance runner. The urge for repeating movements over and over again, methodically and resolutely is something that is significant for both my personality and my work. Multiplicity and recurrence attract me. The variations between the details become important creating patterns and rhythms. I am aiming to create jewellery where dynamic patterns form harmony and balance.

Ellen Jacobsen Holvik
The excitement for me is in the vague and unexplained. I'm fascinated by the quest and the challenge to stop and look, wonder, and take time to think about what you are looking at. As we surround ourselves with information and messages in our daily lives, we are constantly being encouraged to accept the fast and easy, almost as if the fast and easy is being used as a tool to accommodate even more information and messages. These messages can easily prevent us from discovering the less obvious. Perhaps we're missing something important? I aspire to give my audience time to reflect, because there are layers of unhurried messages in my work to discover. I encourage you to stop, open your senses and think.  I invite you to return to my work over time to rediscover and re-evaluate, as if there is always something different and new in my pieces that only you can find there, written between the lines.

Hanna Liljenberg
My abstract floral shapes are in collision between the organic and the constructed. It is based on the idea of repeatingly adding one individual shape onto another until they form an entirety. These ornaments with their fragile sharpness brings a need to adapt to what you are wearing and by that enhance the importance of attendance in the present.
