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.
