Sanna Svedestedt

For my jewellery I often choose classic crafts materials such as leather, wood and metal. Now I have continued to experiment with traditional leather techniques in search of a modern twist, to find a way to develop the trade. “Time-series” is an exploration of both time and material. The pieces are hollow, but they contain a lot of time. Large, light, twisted – a tad bizarre. By using leather I can work in a large scale and still keep the lightness. I like to see how far I can push the material – and my time.

Pernilla Persson
At first it was an interior design project, where every piece of jewelry had a place in a room. An installation of silhouettes with lights as necklaces, rings as flower pots and animal heads as brooches. Now the lights are in focus, I have lifted them out of the room and given them their own lives.

From the plate, I work out silhouettes of lamps. Cut-out, scorched black, with a glimpse of the patterns in blacks. Patterns from the tip of the lamp that hung over Grandma's kitchen table, the tip that she crocheted, that is now instilled in the blackness of a lamp. Enlargements, Reductions, repetitions and meetings between the metals. Chains reminiscent of mounting devices. Shadows from a time past, shadows of the time is now.
