about her work:
"My main source of inspiration for this project is painted metal,
machinery and houses. I use materials that might be thought of as useless
in the world of traditional jewellery. Both wood and iron are found
in the history of jewellery but what I use is scrap wood and industrial
iron sheet. I use a coloured surface on my materials because I am fascinated
by paint used as protection and a covering, decorative layer. The colour
highlights the surface at the same time as it is covering it. The applied
colour is a layer of paint sometimes a bit worn off, which puts the
object in the perspective of time and shows an active decision. My decision
on how I want it to be. I adjust the object until it matches the image
I have in my mind.
Jewellery is always constructed. Applied on the body. It is either made
up by construction or through a decision to designate an object as jewellery.
Jewellery can be decorative, it usually is, but it is never only decoration,
it also tells a story.
Almost everything in the urban environment that surrounds me is constructed,
arranged. Things that I take for granted, things that have become natural
to me. It is as if objects and spaces around me have always been there,
but they are artificial. Applied. Even the landscapes are arranged.
Buildings are placed like jewellery in the landscapes."
I construct, I arrange.
