Biography

BJØRG JEWELLERY was founded by Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen in 2004.

Raised in the northern part of Norway, BJØRG grew up in a little town above of the artic circle. Here nature is wild and unpredictable, with summers defined by eternal sunlight and winters wrapped in inescapable darkness. BJØRG has maintained a strong appreciation and respect for nature. Always aiming to balance the raw and the refine, there is a certain darkish, raw and organic feeling to all her work, reflecting her Nordic soul. Focusing on the rare beauty of imperfections, her trademark has become her use of rough precious stones in combination with crafted metal textures. As an artist BJØRG has a conceptual and sensible approach to design.Inspired by the wonders of nature, past myths and visions of the future, BJØRG merges past and present to create modern relics, always looking to push the limits for what a piece of jewellery can be.
