Humans have had the need to adorn themselves since ancient times. Jewellery fulfils this desire and at the same time reflects peoples’ tastes and, often, their social status. Jewellery can be laden with emotional value but can also serve as a platform for expressing views and values of the wearer. Ingiríður Óðinsdóttir and Jóna Sigríður Jónsdóttir share a background in textile design, while Helga Mogensen is primarily a jewellery designer. There is a sense of journey that connects their work. Helga works with cartography, Ingiríður’s work relates to walking through Icelandic nature with an unexpected twist and Jóna’s work evokes connections to tribal jewellery traditions.

The exhibition is a collaboration with the Textile Association, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2024.
