The urge to repeat movements is significant for Karin Roy Andersson's personality and work, multiplicity attracts her. Variations between details become important creating patterns and rhythms. The aim is to make jewellery where dynamic patterns form balance. Like many other she finds inspiration in nature. Fish, birds, plants and landscapes - the shapes and patterns appear in the pieces but in a non-figurative way that gives space for own interpretations. She finds materials everywhere and recycles bottles and boxes. Her eyes are wide open at the hairdresser, friends' bathrooms and fridges - she has to be observant to find that perfect jewellery material. The plastics still has traces from the consumer society, but in the finished pieces the industrial image has gained an organic impression.
For Karin Roy Andersson, jewellery is about communication. The intimate connection to the body opens for a special relation to the receiver and the wearer's impact on the object is inevitable and intriguing.
