Gudbjorg´s concept has been creating jewelry collections that consist of independent pieces that stand strong on their own but also make an impressive whole when more pieces are worn together. Gudbjorg often seeks inspiration in Iceland’s unique nature, her jewelry pieces don’t imitate but rather evoke the atmosphere of whatever Gudbjorg is influenced by, and when she’s reached a satisfactory outcome she gives each collection an Icelandic woman’s name.
Since most Icelandic names have a meaning, the collections – each consisting of a necklace, earrings, bracelet, ring and sometimes brooches and hairpins – are given names that suit them and symbolize the concept behind their creation.
The Aurum jewelry is most commonly three dimensional and is based on modern design while being classic and timeless.
In 2008 Gudbjorg won the Icelandic Visual Arts Award – the only award given for design in Iceland – for five of her jewellery collections.
