We had a chat with Erik Bergan

We designed a new piece together with Norwegian painter and artist Erik Bergan. A journey back to the nostalgic feeling of playing old games. Then we had a chat with him about his relationship with jewellery.


Who is Erik Bergan?
- I'm an artist, 28 years old. I really went for it in 2016, and painting has been my only occupation for almost 3 years now.

What made you decide to create with us?
- I love the concept of being able to design my own high quality jewelry.

What does this design mean to you?
- Two focuses. On everything life has to offer, with a hint of nostalgia. Nothing makes you focus quite like only having one life left when playing the good old video games.

What is the value of jewelry to you?
- It's the dot over the "i", and I put that very high.

Why do you wear jewellery?
- I love details, and jewelry is the perfect detail to an outfit.

Do you remember your first piece of jewelry?
- In my younger days, when I lived my life sideways on a board. The ring around the ball bearing of my skateboard wheel, I remember fit perfectly around my finger, and I loved it.

Do you know how many pieces you own?
- I guess I have around 15 rings in my jewelry box.

How often do you wear jewelry?
- The ring is always on!

Gold or silver?
- Silver. Gold doesn't suit me.

Who inspires you the most at this moment?
- The surrealist painter, Salvador Dali, is an endless source of inspiration.
