Status by Helle Bjerrum

As the title indicates, I have explored status as a theme. The word status relates both to material values and to one’s standing in terms of reputation and position. How status is achieved varies with time and prevailing trends as well as social and geographic context. In my design and choice of materials I have aimed for close links with the theme. Hence it is possible to find aspects of meaning in many details of the jewelry pieces.

Helle Bjerrum graduated from the Institute for precious metals in 1995. Prior to this she is trained a textile designer from the Design School in Kolding. She had her debut as a designer in 1995, on the 1. Biennale of Arts and Crafts in the Danish Design museum. In 1999 she was noticed as one of DK most prominent contemporary artists, in the Charlottenborg Spring and Autumn exhibitions. Read More »

Silicea Jewelry: Handmade Sterling Silver Masterpieces

I was always crafty with hands, so I went to an arts and design college to find out what I really enjoy doing. As soon as I stepped into the Metals and Jewelry department, I knew I was going to become a jewelry designer. There was so much energy between each jeweler and his/her metal, it instantly drew me into it. Once I started learning the jewelry techniques, and different artists, I realized that what I most like about jewelry design is that it has such a subtle, yet powerful presence. I learned that even one simple piece can change a person’s attitude and aura, and that it is such a personal way of expressing oneself.

I enjoy working with silver. Something about it’s fragility yet sturdiness drew me into it. I also like the fact that the more you wear it, the less it oxidizes. It’s as if each individual pieces are asking for the wearer’s attention. Read More »
