Artisan gemstone jewelry from Scandinavia
I live on the beautiful and dramatic East coast of Sweden with my loving husband and our sweet baby girl. The creative studio of Arctida is situated in the 750 year old city of Stockholm in Sweden. However, the inspiration for my jewelry is taken from much farther north where I was born and grew up, from the polar circle all the way up to the North Pole. The name Arctida refers to the hypothetical polar continent that is believed to exist in the geological past of our planet.
The northern nature with its crisp polar nights and gleaming Northern lights is the main inspiration source for of all of my art. Each individual piece of my jewelry is created with the ideas and influences from the world of the lone Scandinavian mountains that astonish with their untouched landscape and wandering flock of wild reindeer, then on to the even more remote, uninhabited world of ice, populated only by the seals and polar bears.
Through this source of inspiration as well as my interest in natural science (I am a molecular biologist at my day job) I am able to create unique pieces of art with both inner and outer power and genuine "one of a kind" – design.
