Märta Mattsson

Smyckekonstnären Märta Mattsson gör konst av barndomens insekts-fobier. I en intrikat hantverksprocess omvandlas insekternas kroppar till tilldragande smycken.

She is a jewellery artist and has studied at The Royal College of Art in London, as well as at HDK – Academy of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg.
