Ingela Sjösten has a degree in sculpture, interior design and design from the University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. She worked for several years as a designer and interior designer before she started her jewellery career.
“SJOSTENSWEDEN’s business idea is to produce timeless and iconic statement jewellery at affordable prices for women who dare to stand out. I get a huge kick of seeing my jewellery be worn and appreciated by cool and inspiring women, from younger tattooed women to older elegant professional women,” she says.
Ingela is inspired by travel, street art, music, architecture and contemporary art (which is a sure indicator of future trends). She never ceases to be fascinated by the infinite varieties, possibilities and expressions of geometric forms and how they can be worn.
SJOSTENSWEDEN’s jewellery is not for the cute and cautious. The pieces are the powerful geometric shapes. The materials are nappa leather in different colors, silver, brass and silver
brass, as well as stones like aventurine, labrodorite, opal and onyx for a natural color scale.
The jewellery is produced in Jaipur, India, and Ingela Sjösten is very pleased with the cooperation:
“Their brass work is of high quality and it is a modern workshop in Jaipur that has environmental and good conditions for the employees.”
