Saara Ruskola is a jewelry designer and metal artisan. The jewelery will be completed in Sarah's office in eastern Helsinki.
"I make my jewelry for you. Every piece of jewelry I design and make runs through my eyes, mind, and heart. And the joy that a little piece of jewelry can bring is something!"
Saara uses crown caps, for example, as material recycling, which is at its best.
The manufacture of bottle cap jewelry begins with firing, whereby silicone parts and paints burn from the surface of the caps. Each cap gets its new shape by hand. Shaping is done by hand with the help of a wooden log and a hammer. The jewelry is painted and varnished.
Jewelry is painted and finished with lacquer. The inner side gets a lovely colourful paint and the outside a is matching the materials silvery shimmer. Silver parts are also shaped by Saara herself. That way all of the parts are consistent and loyal to her design.
