What is your favorite Icelandic design?

Aurum makes beautiful jewelry that I have a weakness for… This year, they have new items inspired by corals and made in copper that are amazing. Guðbjörg Ingvarsdóttir has her own design signature and is one of our very best designers.

Who would you like to give it to this Christmas?

To my mother who has a certain weakness for jewelry…
And to my sisters…
And my best girlfriends…
…And to myself!

And who should be the next to answer these questions?

Steinunn Sigurðardóttir who has just as strong a design signature in clothing as Guðbjörg from Aurum has in jewelry.

 

– Sigríður Heimisdóttir
