The 8th edition of the New Talents Award by Klimt02 aims to recognize the work of graduate students in our field by supporting their careers in the professional world. Nominated by our school members, one of the selected graduates will win the New Talents Award.

The underlying desire of Johansson is how wearers of her jewellery pieces may be strengthened by the agentive characteristics that she has drawn out from the natural materials that, incorporate smell, warmth, haptic, and magic. Her act of making ‘Hidden Treasures’ may resemble amulet making in the time when our society as a whole has been confronted with the pandemic.
