VIRRVARR, A TRIBUTE TO THE BABBLING BROOKS OF THE NORTH.
Virrvarr means Jumble in Swedish.
Inspired by the Swedish nature and it started
as a playful sketch. This evolved into a soft "sketched" silver wire with a freshwater pearl.
The sweeping movements of silver is a tribute
to the babbling brooks of northern Sweden where I spend a lot of time.
Virrvarr is produced in Anna S silver smithy located in southern Sweden. Made by hand they all look different.
Each brooch is unique. Made by hand in a small village in southern Sweden.
"The process of making jewellery
by hand is that they never look the same.
Never really feel the same. The organic and individual aspects of the trade makes up for the many hours it
takes to make these pieces in a small
DESIGNED AND MADE BY ANNA S
INSPIRED BY THE SWEDISH NATURE
Sweden is a wast and sparse populated country. Nature is always present and accessible. Being one of the most northern countries in the world the Swedish nature is unique. Anna S spend much time up in the northern mountain regions and in her designs it's not hard to spot influences from the northern landscapes, the mountains, the brooks and frostbitten flowers.
The static movement of everything growing combines with
the dancing water and wind is an infinite source of inspiration
for Anna S.
