Raspberry Collision / a photo documentation by Alies Torfs
Photos by Alies Torfs. A documentation of the Garden Necklace and Garden Bracelet.
Products inspired by a beautiful collision. An upbringing on the countryside with a metropolitan subculture ambition. Jewelry developed together with artist Johanna Edwardh.
”All of a sudden I was standing there, my mouth filled with raspberries from the garden, staring at my sister’s Kurt Cobain poster. Didn’t really understand anything, but I still understood enough. A world I was curious about, scary but also exciting, while at the same time I understood that I belonged among the raspberries. My own Grunge was created. A key chain of thorn bushes. An interpretation. The beauty of the few assets we had. The beauty of the strong visualization. The fact that I was in a completely different environment didn’t matter. One was no more real than the other.”
The products are handcrafted in Sweden in solid sterling silver 925.

Flowers beguile us. Flamboyantly they spread their splendor, mocking
the mundane and ordinary. But it’s the scent that stays with us, reviving long lost moments of days past; fleeing memories that suddenly take shape. A translucent essence that surrounds us, penetrate every nook and cranny of our existence.
By offering the entire collection in collaboration with flower shops spread across selected cities in Europe – and making it possible to try out all the models and sizes behind the counter before ordering on kultur5.com – we have the opportunity to explore new ways to be discovered. And at the same time meet the sustainable strategy behind the idea; to stock fewer products and to a greater extent offer made to order accessories.
Stockholm is the first city to offer this new concept, but it will soon be available in London and Copenhagen with other cities to follow.

The packaging for our first series of jewelry is crafted in aluminum. The main idea behind the packaging was to create something that can truly live on and be practical in itself. The aluminum case has the exact proportions to hold a large Solstickan Matchbox, which is an everyday product that’s deeply rooted in Swedish culture. After opening the case and retrieving the jewelry, the case can thus be put to use both practically and decoratively. The case was created by laser cutting raw aluminum pipes.
A wooden tray rests within the aluminum case holding the jewelry.
Pine is easy to sculpt into different shapes and very durable in nature, as pine trees are known to live up to 1,000 years. The aluminum and pine create an interesting composition – two diametrically different types of materials creating a harmonious bond. The pine trays are also used to showcase the jewelry in-store, and can similarly be used to hold the jewelry on a nightstand.
Stones found along the shores of the Swedish archipelago became a central piece of inspiration for the first series of jewelry.
Small fragments of metamorphic rocks such as granite and gneiss. Each one unique, organically derived through pressure and time.
