On this site you will find science inspired silver jewelery designed and manufactured by me, Karin Valegård.

I work with Sterling Silver (silver 925) and fine silver (silver 999), sometimes combined with gold. All my jewelry is handmade and may vary slightly in design. Each jewelry is unique.

You will also find my jewelry, in alphabetical order, in the web shop.
