ABOUT
PETRA SCHOU
Metal and Jewellery Designer

Born in 1968 in Stockholm.
Own business since 1999.
Works mainly with jewellery, but also with corpus.

”In my work, I often start out with an emotion or a mood, a memory of something. Sometimes, I take inspiration from forms in nature and the variations of the seasons, or my own family history.

I often try to relieve the solidity and rigidity of the metal by adding a sense of air and movability.
This is the reason why each piece of jewellery is made out of many small parts that I join or solder together into larger units. In that way, the material softens and becomes more vibrant and sensual. The flexibility allows the jewellery to follow the shape and movements of the body.”
