Names to Know: Jo Riis-Hansen

Jo Riis- Hansen is not just a goldsmith and contemporary jewelry designer, but also a potter able to mold materials in an unusual and unconventional way


Born and raised in Copenhagen, where she develops her creative projects that go beyond the world of jewelry and become art, Jo Riis- Hansen is not just a goldsmith and contemporary jewelry designer, but also a potter able to mold materials in an unusual and unconventional way. Her last, limited edition collection proves it: a series of numbered, one-of-a-kind jewelry items in recycled gold, diamonds and pearls. The pieces did not come from a pre-defined idea, but are the result of a manual work in which technique follows the will of the artist’s personal emotions. And that is how rigor and softness merge to create new experimental shapes.
