Kria

 

The inspiration for Kria appeared on a black lava beach in eastern  Iceland in the summer of 2006 when Johanna Methusalemsdottir found a  skeleton of the bird Kria nestled in the sand.  Kria was officially founded in 2007 while Johanna was experimenting  with the re-contextualization of elements of the natural world through  jewelry. In an effort to integrate the shapes of organic objects such as  bones and branches with the shapes of the human body, she began a fresh  illumination of the grace of evolutionary design with the Kria  collection.
