Marte Frisnes grew up on an island off the west coast of Norway, where she loved to collect natural treasures she’d find on the beach—years later, this past-time became one of the inspirations for her collection of handmade, fine-yet-casual jewellery. Now based in the UK, Marte's elegant, simple designs still have a carefree spirit that resonates with the far-flung places she’s travelled.
Not only a maker but an explorer to her core, Marte’s passion is simply to roam; seeking to find an unknown place on the map or new corners of a familiar city. From the high-density colours of the Positano coast to the bleached-out villages of Greece, or the flea markets of Paris to a neon, post-modern installation artwork, Marte finds inspiration everywhere.
All the jewellery is responsibly made in a boutique workshop in Birmingham Jewellery Quarter. Marte believes that even small things can make a difference, so recycling and reuse are essential company values. Sustainability and transparency, go hand in hand with supporting and working with local skills; all vital to the company's ethos.
