Artist Talk: Guðbjörg Ingvarsdóttir, designer of Aurum Jewellery

Guðbjörg Ingvarsdóttir, designer of Aurum by Guðbjörg Jewellery, will be at Artistry on February 2 to talk about her design process and inspirations behind her jewellery collections.

Guðbjörg has made a name for herself for her innovative jewellery designs which are a combination of delicate individual elements inspired by her surroundings. Guðbjörg often seeks her inspiration from the Icelandic nature and spends time in the West fjords where the majestic and raw landscape has become a source of inspiration, enforcing the natural creativity she possesses. These inspirations are interpreted both in her in-store collections and custom made jewellery art pieces which have been exhibited around the world.

Completing her journeyman’s examination at Copenhagen Polytechnic in 1993, she received her Master's diploma in goldsmithing at Reykjavik Technical College in 1994. Guðbjörg further studied jewellery design at Copenhagen Institute for Precious Metals before returning to Iceland in 1999, founding her own jewellery design company Aurum along with husband Karl Jóhann Jóhannsson MBA. Aurum‘s flagship store is located in the lively city centre of Reykjavík.

Aurum by Guðbjörg has won worldwide acclaim from the likes of Condé Nast Traveler, Timeout, Town & Country, GQ, Vogue and many others. ELLE magazine ranks our flagship store in Iceland as one of the “Best boutiques in the World”. Aurum received the Njarðarskjöldur award for Best Tourist Shop of the Year.
