Candy for the eyes by Pernilla Sylwan

Chewy Rat

Several of the broaches and necklaces created by Pernilla Sylwan feature irregular-shaped gems which look like jellied candies that have temporarily been removed from someone’s mouth. Sylvan calls the jewelry collection which will go on display starting on Saturday at the Nutida Svenskt Silver boutique “Guld och Godis,” which translates roughly (minus its lovely alliteration) as “Gold and Candy.” The artisan says that she feels like a kid in a candy shop when she visits a gem dealer. I personally like the broach pictured above called “Chewy Rat,” (Seg Råtta), which is the name of a popular type of artificially colored candy usually marketed here in bins.
The exhibit at Arsenalgatan 3 in Stockholm will continue until October 12.
