Tui penny earrings
Necklace in copper and sterling silver by Helena Andersson
Tui 3cm wide x 3.5cm total length
My inspiration for my pieces is mainly based on shapes and forms from the 50’s and 60’s. I’m also influenced by the minimalistic surroundings I had while growing up in Sweden and the New Zealand lifestyle I have had the last 20 years.
I enjoy working in precious and semi-precious metal in a combination with natural materials such as pearls, shells, feathers, wood, bone and precious, semi-precious and beach stones. I prefer to make all my pieces individually even if I am using the same design. That way each piece get its own personality and value.
