Barbro Eriksdotter creates contemporary art jewelry and small objects. Her native Sweden informs her aesthetics; clean, minimalist lines and forms dominate. However, textures are often used as a dynamic contrast. She uses precious metals as well as unconventional materials – listening to her 'muse', not to convention. "Creating art is a joyous exploration of that which was not there before."
Barbro is a partner, since 1983, of Studio Metallum (#201) known for its innovative, contemporary designs. A faculty member of the Art League School for many years, she now focuses entirely on creating her own one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry. She is a founding member and past president of Washington Guild of Goldsmiths.
Her award-winning work has been featured in numerous local, national and international exhibitions.
