ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Maria Nilsdotter is proud to announce the launch of the AW18 collection Moondust.
– Lunar dust sounds magical and is fine, like a powder, but it cuts like glass and smells like gunpowder –
For this collection Maria Nilsdotter is going back to the roots of her bejewelled universe, finding inspiration in the Scandinavian mythology, melancholic nature and the world of Swedish painter and illustrator John Bauer. Maria Nilsdotter’s latest collection is a tribute to the Swedish folk sagas. The collection has got a bond to the forces of the moon, starry nights and the mystique of unknown creatures.
The pieces of the collections are sculpted in either silver or gold plated silver and adorned with diamonds, rubies, sapphires, moonstones, black spinel, garnets and pearls. In the collection, the objects take different shapes according to the reference points, hinting towards planets, fabled creatures, star-speckled skies and well worn treasures.
