Kria

Taking a stroll on a black, sandy beach in Iceland in 2006, Icelandic jewelry designer Johanna Methusalemsdottir came across the white bones of an Arctic Tern, lying in the sand. Intrigued by the shapes of the bones, Johanna took them home to play with. The result is her successful Kria collection, a set of mystical, slightly macabre line of jewelry. The collection consists of bronze, black oxidized silver and 14 carat gold amulets cast from the jawbone of fish and birds vertebrae etc. Cod bones are the main inspiration for Kria´s upcoming collection, which will be available in selected stores in New York, Iceland and Norway.
