this year`s theme: eloquent hands
Nanna Obel has a narrative approach to art jewellery. She tells stories through her work - as a
way to communicate. She has a big interest in women’s and equal rights and social political issues
- themes she often incorporates in her work with humour and irony. She aims to make the wearer
and the viewer reflect, relate and connect through her small wearable collages.
Nanna has her jewellery practice near Copenhagen in Denmark. She was educated as a graphic
designer at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1995 and worked in various design studios
for 15 years before changing career path. After intensive goldsmith’s courses and a degree from
The Institute of Precious Metals in Copenhagen in 2015, she is now developing her unique
jewellery. She was nominated for The Copenhagen Goldsmith Guild’s talent Prize in 2019 and has
exhibited her work national and international for the past years. She is also an active board
member of the Copenhagen Goldsmith Guild.
