Styles, tv-shows, tendencies, magazines…all about food. Food is integrated in everything and became a lifestyle. You can define who you are by the choice of what you eat. People identify themselves as vegetarian, as raw food eaters, around a chef or a restaurant. Food festivals are a growing thing.

Other businesses see that and use it for their own benefit. Think about fashion, film, theater, design, technology. New production methods pop up, new ways of packing. Even designers use food and take it out of their traditional context. This drift to innovate leads to extreme ways of expression.

Like the designer Tiffany Row with her collection “Ephemeral”, the jewellery collection consists of very unusual ingredients – necklaces made of roses, berries, grapes, mushroom and even intestines and tripe!

A word from designer Tiffany Rowe on inspiration behind the collection:

“Having studied biology, I’m in constant admiration of the simple but perfect beauty of nature that surrounds us. However, living in Geneva city I’m also confronted by luxury, wealth and trivia. It’s a bit of a paradox, really. Walking back from the market, I suddenly had the bold idea of creating a jewellery collection that no one could buy or own, and would only exist a short moment – sufficient to be immortalised by photography, but no longer. With fresh ingredients bought from the florist, farmer and even the butcher, I set about creating sculptural necklaces, largely inspired by 16th century portrait paintings. Wishing to steer away from current consumerism, I draped a model in silk taffeta and “constructed” the jewellery directly on her. In the manner of Oscar Wilde’s character Dorian Gray, I secretly dreamed being able to suspend time, yet by the end of the afternoon the roses had withered and the fruit had dried. I rather liked the idea that this ephemeral collection could not be possessed and that all that would remain of it would be six images, memory of the odours and the pleasure I had in imagining it.”

Bjørg Nordli-Mathisen grew up in the north of Norway and began making one-of-a-kind jewellery whilst living in India in 2004. With a background from the arts, she has upheld a nomadic lifestyle, always drifting towards new corners of the world in search of inspiration.

Whether the specific inspiration comes from surrealism, Charles Darwin experiments or ancient myths, there is always a link through an industrial approach to conveying nature in a piece of jewellery.
