Jewellery editor Natasha Sherling admires a new sustainable collection crafted using pieces from recycled silver and shells …
Seeing beauty in the unusual, Swedish artist Mia Larsson‘s jewellery has sustainability at its core. Sculptural and elegant, her designs use only recyclable and decomposable materials – and a new collaboration with & Other Stories offers the chance for the masses to own a piece of her beautiful work.
As per her recent standalone collections, for this collaboration Larsson looked to the coast, crafting pieces from recycled silver and shells – bounty collected from a seafood restaurant in Stockholm before being washed, prepped and set in her own studio. There’s something mesmerising about her process, as documented on her Instagram – shells lined up neatly drying on a table before being paired off for earrings; the attempt to match what nature makes as one of a kind is fascinating, the results of course are similar, but will always be unmatched, so no two jewels are ever the same.
These are strong, luxurious jewels that draw on what is precious in nature – the shimmer of the shells in the light is alluring and we can’t help but be drawn to the Karolina earrings, €149. The Marie hair clip, €129, is also striking; its mermaid vibes tie in perfectly with this season’s obsession with hair accessories. Seven pieces in total make up the very limited edition collection which launches across stores and online today – the perfect accompaniment to summer dressing by the sea.
