“My best ideas are born when I wander in nature. I love walking in the archipelago looking for treasures that have been washed ashore. These environments inspire me to create unique jewellery. By unique, I mean that every piece must have a unique idea, which is expressed through the design.

We work with our own collections and in partnerships. We’ve worked with the legendary Finnish Jewellery brand, Kalevala Jewelry, and Suunto, the Finnish manufacturer of world-renowned watches and precision instruments. All our jewellery is made in Finland, and we strive to work with recycled silver and gold.  We design in harmony with sustainable development to create timeless jewellery. My biggest hope is that my creations stand the test of time, and get passed down through generations.”
