In our new collection, ARCTIC, I focus on climate change and the vulnerable Greenlandic nature.
Therefore, I have designed keyholders and bracelets with glass beads in the form of ice cubes. They are made of surplus material from the production of our eyewear and sustainable glass beads from Ghana.
The beautiful glass beads are made in a workshop in Ghana as part of a project supported by DANIDA.
With support from DANIDA Butik Silkevejen in Copenhagen, Denmark and SUN Trade in Accra the capital city of Ghana, have developed a workshop, where the bead makers receive education on how to use computers and also how they can prevent HIV/AIDS.
For the sake of the environment, a gas oven is used in the production of the pearls. This way, the workshops help to ensure some of Ghana’s timber resources.
