About JenniJenni Caldwell Contemporary Jewellery

such a unique style
and approach to design
influences stem strongly from the cool blue
light of the Northern climates, of space
, and in the nature
of the surrounding environment.Jenni
seeks to capture beauty
, and to realise the forms
in metal. The distinct strong reliance on form and the graphic language makes Jenni's jewellery unique in its journey into metal.
Each piece of
other art object is individually hand-crafted in her workshop in Gothenburg, Sweden. Jenni's designs
are constantly evolving
, and new concepts are developed on a weekly basis. Jenni works on new in-house collections
and individual commissions
