Foraging & design: Sun 21 July

Started 4:30am with breakfast by just picking wild berries & more mushrooms. Blue berries grow everywhere. They are my fave berry bush and inspiration for my ring design.

Playing with my food, as you do. 

Maybe it’s a ring.

Any thoughts?


There’s so much mystery & potential for magic here on the islands.

And rain drops to inspire more jewellery.


Evidence of when the Vikings switched to Christianity. This tombstone is not a cross yet. It’s a rune in the shape of an arrow pointing to the god of Thor. And the letter “T” in the runic alphabet. The cemetery my grands lie in dates back to when Kungälv was the biggest Scandinavian city in Viking times.

I just snuck right up on 2 badgers 🦡 in the midnight sun. They were eating wild raspberries. I could almost touch them. I’ve never seen them in the wild before. Also a baby deer 🦌 (only half a meter long). So tiny.
