BJØRG Jewellery- One year birthday party
I´ve got my eyes on BJØRG JEWELLERY at the moment. After having their Copenhagen store opened for one year there is time for celebration.
Tell us about the brand Bjørg?
BJØRG Jewellery was founded by Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen in 2004. Living in India at the time, she was introduced to the traditional craftsmanship and ancient jewellery traditions, which inspired her to start making her own one-of-a-kind jewellery. Her first collection was launched at Liberty in London. Today BJØRG is carried by high-end jewellers, fashion boutiques and galleries around the world.
Bjørg’s jewelry has been worn by artist such as David Bowie, Madonna, Rihanna, Robyn, J and Röyksopp. Editorial coverage includes Vogue, ID, Dazed and Confused, Elle, Another Magazine, Hunger, WAD, Marie Claire, L’officiel, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and others.
Crossing 40 countries around the world Stockists are high-end jewellers, fashion boutiques and galleries. All BJØRG pieces are handmade and all materials are 100 % natural and obtained in accordance to environmental preservation.
Where does your inspiration come from when you’re designing new jewelry? Coming from Norway, does that play a large part in how you design?
Raised in the northern part of Norway, BJØRG grew up in a little town above of the arctic circle. Here nature is wild and unpredictable, with summers defined by eternal sunlight and winters wrapped in inescapable darkness. BJØRG has maintained a strong appreciation and respect for nature. Always aiming to balance the raw and the refine, there is a certain darkish, raw and organic feeling to all her work, reflecting her Nordic soul. Focusing on the rare beauty of imperfections, her trademark has become her use of rough precious stones in combination with crafted metal textures. As an artist BJØRG has a conceptual and sensible approach to design. Inspired by the wonders of nature, past myths and visions of the future, BJØRG merges past and present to create modern relics, always looking to push the limits for what a piece of jewellery can be. BJØRG has upheld a nomadic lifestyle, always drifting towards new corners of the world in search of inspiration. She’s been living in Paris, Milan, New Delhi, Oslo, New York and is currently based in Copenhagen.
Bjørg jewellery has opened one store in Copenhagen, planning on opening more stores around the world?
You never know.
Tell us about the birthday party Bjørg jewellery is throwing on the 4th of August?
One year ago we opened the very first BJØRG Jewellery Concept Store, located in the heart of Copenhagen. The store is a continuation of BJØRG’s vision, with every single part specially made for the purpose. You’ll find unique installations made out of materials such as horsehair, crystals, casted hands and bodies, brass and ceramics. And employees wearing uniforms designed by Veronica B. Vallenes. This Friday, one year after the opening, we’re inviting friends and customers to celebrate our first birthday with us.
There will be drinks, music by Tobias Holz and an in-store exclusive 20% discount on all products – Including the latest collection, classics from the old collections and show-pieces and one-off’s from the archives.
At 21:30 we move to Chateau Motel for an afterparty with free entrance, drinks and goodiebags for the first.
