Sodium, potassium and calcium are carried in our veins. We have that in common with all the fish, amphibians, reptiles, warm-blooded birds and mammals. It is a salty stream combined in almost the same proportions as in seawater. Life on Earth arose in the ancient sea. When we once left our original home to live our lives on land we took the sea with us inside our bodies. We still carry it.

Man's relation to the sea accommodates a gamut of feelings and thoughts. We are drawn to it, yet we know little about it. 80% of its wonders and mysteries are still waiting for us. It triggers our imagination and fear. No one is untouched.

Treasures from the Sea was shown in Paris during the international jewellery triennial Parcours Bijoux 2020 where it became a highly appreciated exhibition. As a complement to the exhibition, a book with the same title is available. It gives an even deeper approach to the subject and in it, the jewellers describe their work and process. The foreword is written by Anders Omstedt, professor emeritus in oceanography, the author of "A Philosophic View of the Ocean and Humanity".
