what i like about jlschnabel's work is that it's very "out there" its strange and definitely for surrealist fans. I rally love the way she casts the natural appendages of birds as a fellow jeweler smith i know that's not easy i have not yet mastered it but i hope i do its. In my work i want to mix both natural objects and metal ones to create a cluster of items on a necklace or a ring.

Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen grew up in the north of Norway and began making one-of-a-kind jewellery whilst living in India in 2004. With a background from the arts, she has upheld a nomadic lifestyle, always drifting towards newcorners of the world in search of inspiration.
Bjørg releases two collections per year. The Classic collection has its foundation in silver, diamonds and precious stones whilst the Odyssey collection represents new directions through its foundation in bronze. All materials are 100 % natural and obtained in accordance to environmental preservation. There is a conceptual approach to all of her designs that encapsulates both previous and present collections as balancing acts between the fine and the raw. Whether the specific inspiration comes from surrealism, Charles Darwin experiments or ancient myths, there is always a link through an industrial approach to conveying nature in a piece of jewellery.
I like her work because it very different and unusual its not the sort of jewellery that is worn for no reason it is a statement. Her work has concept which give her work meanings and its own story to me that's the charm of theses pieces.
My project title is Objective chance which is the probity of how random abject are actually related. i am looking at abject that have been given meaning, superstitious and folkstory's. My main focus was religious artifacts which would be used by shamans and medicine men.
