    these are absolutely fantastic.
    how long does it usually take to churn out a singular ring?

    I forgot to say that I'm part of a showroom during Stockholm fashion week, 26-27 of august, at the Army museum. If you are around during that time you are more than welcome to pop by, see some work, have a drink, would be fun to see some SZ folks!

    Thnx for all the positive feedback!
    As radio-aktivität said Sturm und Drang was a cultural movement in germany. For this collection I draw inspiration from art and poetry from that era. I was also influenced by the ideas of the sublime within nature, that derived from Kant during that zeitgeist, as something noble, splendid and terrifying and tried to incorporate that in a contemporary context within my work.

    Her are the last three pieces from the collection, hope you enjoy it!


    Island Fibula: Sterling silver, oak wood.
    Techniques: Wood carving, forging, nail making, filing, polishing.






    Stalactite Necklace: Sterling silver, oak wood.
    Techniques: Wood carving, forging, nail making, filing, polishing.




    Colossus Ring: Sterling silver.
    Techniques: 3D modeling, 3D printing, lost wax casting, filing, polishing.

    Sturm und Drang was a german literary and artistic movement prior to Romanticism and, by the time, contrary to the classical period of Rationalism. Think of the early Goethe and Schiller.
    I didn’t know about the Potter reference to that era, although Durmstrang sounds a bit odd to a German.

    More on topic: the visible nail does it for me. I always like to see how things work and explain themselves by the very nature of their design.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback!

    jacquesrevalde: Its a good school, with good facilities. My programme is very open to new approaches towards jewelry and have a high level of critical thinking which is nice. But like all educations it have its pros and cons..
    The chain is the only part I didn't do by hand, I usually make my own chains but i find the filed and cut ones to be a bit overkill..

    ahn: Indeed it is, and much more openminded than a couple of years ago. I would love to see some of your work!

    NicolasA: Thnxs! I think so as well, and that there are other ways to show technical skills then high polishing..

    I just finished a new necklace from the same collection, will try to post an image of it tomorrow

    Amazing. Mineral world has definitely an immense range of possibilites.


    Raw finish in jewelry I think it's VERY interesting as well. But as jacques said, great skills!

    Would like to see more!

    Beautiful work! I feel that many of us emerging jewellers take inspiration from a similar zeitgeist (pardon the pun). Although in no way the same design, I can see that some of my recent work has a very similar aesthetic value to your first ring. I think it is a very exciting time to be a contemporary young jeweller. Congratulations, I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your collection with much anticipation.
