I am very happy to have been selected among the 15 artists representing Sweden in The European Triennal for Contemporary Jewellery 2017 in Mons, Belgium.

The European Triennal for Contemporary Jewellery, organized by WCC BF (World Crafts Council Belgique francophone), is an internationally recognized event where two European countries are invited to join Belgium at every triennial. This year: France and Sweden. Three commissioners were chosen to select representative works of their respective countries: François Vanderauwera for Belgium; Brune Boyer for France and Sofia Björkman for Sweden.

With support by Iaspis, The Swedish Arts Grants Committeé, I traveled to Belgium to participate in the inauguration of the triennal in October 2017.
