The jewellery designed by Swedish silver and goldsmith Patrik Hansson, is as refined and minimalist as possible. It is easy to see Patrik Hansson’s roots in graphic design, an education he undertook before turning to jewellery. Basic geometric shapes like squares, circles and loops are layered and deconstructed precisely. Every detail is thought through, every perspective considered and perfected. So why didn’t he stick to graphic design? He finds inspiration in working with his hands. The crafting itself and the vibrant color of gold seduces him. And that is how he seduces us.
For me it’s important to have one thing that catches the attention in a piece. It could be a cut, a line or something else as long as it’s adding to the work. In my opinion you could explore these shapes in depth.
However elementary the shapes, it is amazing how Patrik Hansson’s designs provoke attention. Everyone longs to find out what the secret about them actually is. Every single piece is indeed special: they are more potent a statement in an outfit than any huge stone-encrusted piece of jewellery could ever be.
