Guest Star Friday #119...Helga Mogensen

I mentioned Helga Mogensen here recently when I saw her work at Kirsuberjatréð in Reykjavik. The next day I went back to meet her after we exchanged some Facebook messages. It was wonderful to see her and have a few moments to talk.

Helga's work combines silver with found materials like driftwood and fish skin that she collects and it tends to be very personal, focusing on themes of family and capturing moments. In person the pieces are tactile and have lovely, subtle details.

To read a great post on more Icelandic jewelry, including Helga and my other Icelandic Guest Star, Hildur Ýr Jónsdóttir, visit this link: Design March Reykjavik.

Thanks for reading.
