Linnéa Eriksson (Sweden)
Linnéa creates street art-influenced jewellery. She is famous for her bold and sharp designs. Her structured geometric design and rough finishing are reflections of her surroundings. They demonstrate her creativity has its origin in the urban city. She finds her inspirations in pieces of metal, feeling of heavy beats, and explosion of colors from spray cans.
Nicole Taubinger (Czech Republic)
Nicole uses everyday objects that surround us everywhere. They are so close to us that we no longer see them. She sets them into a different context, so they become visible again. She aims to show how multi-facetted our society and its paradoxes are, they have become our second nature.
Using classical jewellery working methods, she creates her jewellery in such a way that the material connects within itself. The materials she uses are still in almost new state, yet they have been discarded in scrap yards, containers or recycling plants. Indigenous people historically used seeds and pits to create their jewellery. The discarded materials she uses are the seeds and pits of our second nature.
