Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen grew up in the north of Norway and began making one-of-a-kind jewelery items while living in India in 2004. With Arts studies background, she has upheld a nomadic lifestyle, always drifting towards new corners of the world in search of inspiration.
Each year, two collections are released – The Classic Collection and the Odyssey Collection. The Classic Collection has its foundation in silver, diamonds and precious stones; The Odyssey Collection represents new directions through its foundation in bronze. All materials are 100 % natural and obtained in accordance to environmental preservation.
The Bjorg 2012 Collection is titled “Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost”, drawing its inspiration is drawn from mythology and tales, playing with escapist and Romantic fantasies. Similar to previous years’ collections, the items balances and blends the fine and the raw, combining fragile and organic structures with an aesthetic influenced by modern mythology and geometry.
The lookbook is just stunning. It’s Game of Thrones meets Tron meets Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (there’s something about the Scandinavian creative style… and we’re not talking about Ikea). The models look detached at times but lost and in need of a helping hand. You can almost hear and feel the cold wind. And the jewelry, especially the Odyssey pieces, has left us speechless. Cold and sexy, hot and powerful. Make sure you don’t miss the video below. Everything you felt and thought up until now of these photos is going to change. Prepare yourselves, winter is coming.
