You will find some of my jewelry in the jeweler shop Atlas Guld in Uppsala.
I combine years of experience as a scientist and protein crystallographer with my silversmith.
All jewelry is handmade in Sterling Silver (silver 925) and 18K gold – designed and formed by me. I form protein, DNA and small molecules in silver wire. A perfect piece of silver jewelry for you looking for an unique gift.
I will have an exhibition at Galleri Upsala at Svartbäcksgatan 21 in Uppsala.
Welcome to the opening on July 6th!
