My very good friend and fellow jeweller Paula Lindblom is showing work at "The Coolest Corner", a touring exhibition showing works from makers in Nordic countries. Below you can see two works by Paula and it's inclusion in the catalogue.
"The touring exhibition, From the Coolest Corner, is conceived as a follow-up of the successful Nordic jewellery exhibitions in 1996/7 and 2002/3. Each Nordic country will be thoroughly presented at the exhibition. A total of about 160 works will be on show, including a selected group of artists from Estonia. An international expert jury has selected the participants based on applications from the artists. The exhibition will feature the newest and most advanced of Nordic jewellery, and presented to a wide audience."
