ABOUT

EDGY – ELEGANT – RAW
Contemporary slow-jewellery designed and by Michala Eken, Copenhagen based architect and jewellery designer/maker.
Handcrafted in Copenhagen.

-My jewellery design is characterized by its ornamental, linear, minimalistic and clear geometric language. I use my background as an architect and my urge to play with contours, structure, form, and proportion - sculpting each piece with a significant aesthetic and poetic expression that renders them timeless, functional and unique at the same time.


-The basic motif of my work is the simple balance between contrasting elements. My jewellery designs are often playful with moving parts. I see the decoration of body and space as statements in physical form sparking connections between object and carrier or viewer.


-My background is unconventional: I'm an architect, specializing in artcommissions and surfacedesign and the former owner of a Copenhagen artspace. I recently finished a larger, site-specific precious metal commission - an altar cross in silver to Venø Church, Struer, Denmark. I've been designing contemporary jewellery and precious metal objects since 2013 where I designed the JUJU collection that still holds several of my ‘hero pieces’ - including the TWINS and COME TOGETHER bangles and the JOIN ring.
Today I have my own artisan atelier  and showroom in Linnésgade 27 by Nørreport Station in central Copenhagen where I personally craft every piece of jewellery.
