Blå timen - the first hint #1 is the earrings in the two part jewellery sett, Blå timen - the first hint. The set consisting of a necklace and earrings and is part of a new body of work inspired by the winter twilight in Norway - the blue hour. The blue hour is the period of twilight when the Sun is at a significant depth below the horizon and residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue shade which differs from the one visible by day. This set is inspired by the silent hint of the darker blue that ascend as the night creeps in and the blue hour begins.
In the prosses of making the work, Bergsvik brings together both old and new by combining handmade techniques alongside the contemporary and digital. The jewellery is designed digitally, then cut with a laser and further processed and finished by hand on the workbench. The materials used are Formica laminate, wood veneer and 925 silver. The choice of materials is based on the individual qualities of each material that allows for the desired expression, combined with qualities such as weight, strength, and colour. This jewellery series, Blå timen, is a limited edition with only 10 copies of each piece, that aim to represent a unique and distinctive voice.
