My name is Josephine Ryan, and I’m a Norwegian goldsmith.
I finished my education at Plus-Skolen in 2013.

I have a small workshop, and I design and make everything by hand myself.
I mostly use gold, silver and sometimes exotic alloys such as shakudo and shibuchi.
My favourite gemstones are meteorites, unique diamonds, and untreated sapphires.

Most of my items are one of a kind, and some are things that I will make more than one of. They are still unique, as each one is made by hand, so no two will be exactly the same. I feel this gives a personality to the jewellery pieces.

I take custom orders, don’t hesitate to message me if you have a request, or want to discuss ideas.
You can find my jewellery here on Etsy:

These photos are from the Nordic Gold competition, a championship for Nordic goldsmtihs where I represented Norway, together with one other goldsmith.

I love Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Firefly, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and often like to make jewellery inspired by things I’m a fan of.
I also like making science inspired jewellery, like solar systems, constellations, molecules etc.
