Hedman: Wearable sculptures?

Elaborate, hugely ovesized and at the same time delicate, subtle, and complex, Hanna Hedman’s silver jewellery has a odd, out-of-this-world quality to it.

The creator suggests that her pieces were inspired by the ever-evolving art of storytelling, in which each narrator embellishes the tale at his or her whim, but keeping the basic structure."Ornamental story that is neither black nor white; instead it exists in a grey area, undefined and strange", says the Stockholm-based designer.

May the sagas of her homeland be in someway present in her embroidered metal art-work?
