Earrings inspired by small nuts in recycled 18k gold. The WORK collection is Jocke Berg's second collection, designed for the Högdalen. The name of the collection is inspired by Rihanna's hit "WORK".
Nut: 5,4 x 4,8mm.
“This collaboration is the first for the HÖGDALEN, and to me, it’s been very important that Jocke has been totally free in his creativity. My gold and silver smith Torbjörn Erstrand and I have been there to support with knowledge about the material and the craftsmanship. I have never done a designer collaboration with jewellery before, but I just knew that Jocke was right for it.” – Efva Attling
“I like that idea of highlighting utensils and make them valuable in some way. And I think nuts, bolts and nails are certainly interesting because they are such throwaways.”
“One of my favourite designers ever, Carol Christian Poell, who mainly makes clothes, but also jewellery every now and then, made a bracelet in the shape of a nail, hammered to wrap 1 ½ turn around the wrist. Very beautiful but also brutal in a way. It made me think that maybe you could use something else from that world – wear and tear objects that still have an incredibly exciting and beautiful shape. When the nuts became this small and you put them together, they will each spin in its own way, creating very, very nice reflections.”
