ARV Swedish Design
“Jewellery is special because it's a non-verbal communication of your own personal story.”
After studying medical genetics at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, designer Alicia Bergsten came up with the idea of creating jewellery inspired by science.
Then, in 2008, she realised that dream, teaming up with a professional silversmith to launch ARV Swedish Design. Working with fine materials such as silver, leather and steel, they handcraft a stunning range of bracelets and necklaces that pay tribute to the scientific world that Alicia loves so much.
From the homage to femininity that is the two X chromosome medallion to the ATCG pendant that references the molecular structure of DNA, Alicia’s work is definitely unique.
