’Jewellery is not just jewellery – it is a tale with a message. It is information passed on to create feelings, thoughts and experiences.

Every day I work in the workshop to make high quality jewellery and craft in gold, silver and precious gemstones. By closely observing forms and patterns within nature and my everyday life, my jewellery echoes the objects that I have drawn inspiration from. My pieces are never loud but instead fragile in a poetic and storytelling way. They tell something subtle or fun and there is often a personal story behind each of the pieces.
I see my jewellery as small creations you use, take care of and have for the rest of your life. That is such a lovely thought’.

Jewellery designer Rikke Lunnemann born on the Faroe Islands, educated in London, England now living in Svendborg, Denmark.

Lunnemann has participated in several exhibitions; Biennale for Craft & Design and her jewellery has been exhibited in a number of worldwide galleries in e.g. Italy, Germany, France and Taiwan.

Winner of Danish Crafts and Design Association prize ‘Håndfuglen’ for ‘Best new product’.

Studio

Each piece of jewellery is artistically designed and produced by hand in my craft studio in Svendborg. Working hands-on with the material at my studio has always been a source of inspiration and I believe that the careful human touch in the making process makes the piece unique and adds value.

I see my jewellery as small creations you use, take care of and have for the rest of your life. That is such a lovely thought’ and all in harmony with my thoughts on sustainability. Furthermore, I aim to craft every piece in recycled gold and silver as it is most gentle on the environment.
