Natural art with an attitude. Märta Larsson, raised in Swedish Lapland she evolved from a ballerina of the Academy of Ballet in Stockholm to a rock’n’roll band lead singer in London, and now an international jeweller of hand-crafted one-of-a-kind pieces.
Since the launch, Märta Larsson’s designs have been featured repeatedly in major fashion press and worn by a number of artists and dignitaries. She debuted at Stockholm Fashion Week in August 2014 with her exhibition at Bukowski’s.
The inspiration for her jewellery springs from forcing the pristine, yet wild and rugged nature of her childhood’s Lapland into the more decadent world of the surreal, creative and unbounded characters she met in London. She loves the unexpected edginess of a shiny but raw stone hard-bound by metal. The Bondage Pendant harnesses the untamed nature, the heart of a loved one. At the same time Märta wants to evoke the unspoilt wilderness; life unspoilt by life.
The collection features pyrite, black tourmaline, quartz, amethyst and lapis. Märta handpicks every stone for her jewellery creations. The materials she uses yield truly individualized works of art, each having its own unique colour and shape. The designs respect nature’s unending variation and make each piece a unique creation. She sees the stones as nature’s own works of art, with its endless variations and ‘imperfections’ bringing more character, more beauty, than mere ‘perfection’.
