The Designer Bjorg was born on a dark winter-night in December 1966. She grew up in the arctic nature where the wild mountains meet the North Ice Ocean. With bright summer nights and winter days with darkness and colors of the Nordic light.
Bjorg was gifted with an energetic family with open minds, and was the youngest of four children. She was always encouraged to enjoy her creativity and she had an endless line of projects like the rest of her family.
At age seventeen Bjorg moved to Oslo and attended art school for one year. Between the age of eighteen to twenty-one she worked in the fashion industry and traveled the world.
During all this year she loved making clothes. When she turned twenty-two she bought a knitting machine and started making her own line of clothing - and was soon exhibiting in galleries in Norway, Japan and Germany.
Three years later she moved to Copenhagen where she stayed for nine years. During these years she had her own studio/boutique on the North coast of Sjalland. She designed and produced home textiles, children clothing, accessories and jewellery. In 2001 she published the book “Seasons with children”.
In 2001 she moved to India with her family for three years. There she discovered the vibrant colors and mesmerizing beauty of majestic gems and natural stones
Her first one-off pieces was sold directly to Liberty and Harvey Nichols in 2003. Jewellery making was now a full-time commitment. In 2004, after moving back home to Norway, the brand bjorg was a fact. Her first collection was released with great success - and her jewellery is now represented in more than 20 countries throughout the world.
She developed her very own style of jewellery with combinations that had no root in rights and wrongs. A new market emerged for “everyday use” and she managed to create a style that was innovative, raw and elegant at the same time. Her jewels are widely recognized for their individuality and raw elegance. Her playful, cool and crafted pieces are loved by men and women all over the world with a passion for style, fashion, aesthetics and art.
