about me

fascinated by the circular powers of pure metals, I took my first jewelry making class at the University of California in San Diego in 2000 and knew right away that I had found my craft
after living for nearly 7 years in Tokyo and smithing at Hiko Mizuno Jewelry College in Tokyo, as well as in my own workshop, kinyobistudio, the whole universe has now moved back to Sweden
kinyobi translates to "gold day" and is Japanese for friday
I love fridays and gold
the kanji used for kin 金 is also the hallmark for my pieces 
with a deep passion for the art of wabi-sabi, I am working with imperfection, sustainability and re-purpose
my pieces are handmade, hand carved, cast and finished all in Tokyo or Sweden
I am committed to small-scale production and the practice of slow-smithing
following the metal, staying close to it, in an organic process that results in two objects never being the same
