ABOUT THE ARTIST
Kaja Gjedebo, the name behind the jewellery label KGD, studied both jewellery and furniture design at Edinburgh College of art. This divergence of skill is apparent in the wide range of designs of KGD.
Kaja is not led by trends, but rather by Kaja’s personal interests. The result is elegant and timeless jewellery, combining natural forms with delicate construction. Gjedebo’s talent lies in her skill to manipulate and arrange the very small.
Gjedebo values skills and craftsmanship and believes in its value for the future.

"I live by the forest which is surrounding Oslo. The neighbourhood are row-houses made for artists with studios attached to the houses. My neighbors are painters, sculptors, ceramicists and writers, always ready for a coffee if needed. Every morning I go for a walk in the forest before I return to the workshop. Life is fine!"
