These pieces are from a collection called “Ode to F.” She writes about the collection:

“F. was my grandmother. She was a strong, active and very central person in my family. I loved her very much. She had lived through hard times, many sorrows as well as joy, and still had a good life. Her home was a meeting place for people in the village and there was always someone hanging around, sometimes as a long-term stay but also just coming by to say hello. F. was a dedicated social democrat and loved Olof Palme and has their sign, the rose, on her tombstone.
F. liked to redecorate her home, but she only had things that were useful. Things that were given to her she really tried hard to find use for, but if it didn´t succeed she gave them away.
When we were shopping she was concerned about everything she was buying. Looking at china she was always looking at the bottom side to check the quality.

When she died there only left the things she used for her everyday life – no nostalgia, nothing gathered and left. ”

Here you find more images from the collection as well as more of her work.

Look – I received these amazing images from Frida Åberg – take a look. You can see more images and read about Frida Åberg at her website. She also writes a blog.

At her website she writes about her work:

“Frida Åberg’s expression combines poetic value with romantic memories.

The material and tactical qualities of her jewellery reveal strong intent and judgement and a most sensitive approach to making.

The beauty of her jewellery lives in the space between the inner and outer expression of the object. The pieces are created around a feeling. Hidden memories materialise into objects that simultaneously appear to be fragile and immortal, and behold a strangeness that will capture the viewer.”
