Usually, metal is strong and wool is a soft and fragile material. But if we put them together we’ll soon learn that if there’s not enough yarn a metal wire twisted into a spiral loses its shape. If the yarn isn’t strong enough, the metal is soft ..
So which of the two is the strong one?
It doesn’t really matter, for it’s the combination of the two that gives us a charming soft-and-strong result.
On the coast of the Baltic Sea, people used bronze spirals both as jewellery and decorative elements on garments. This was in the first half of the first millenium.
In creating jewellery, I have travelled back in time, but not in the sense of making the bronze spirals just as they used to be. Rather, I hope to bring back an old and well forgotten craft, the memory that has been erased. To bring an old story through time and shape it so that it will fit into present day:)
