DIY | Scandinavian minimalism

øreringe i minimalistiske former

Smyks continues with stocking up on simple geometrical shapes which have proved to be very popular. Now we can show you a little collection playing with different shapes and materials in a variety of combinations.

Minimalism means to concentrate on the most important and omitting the redundant. This style is characteristic for Danish interior design – but also for Danish jewellery. It is precisely the simple designs which are the most popular and best-selling in our Scandinavian homeland.

All our new earstuds and earwires can be worn just as they are – or they can be combined with other shapes.

The jewellery components come in sterling silver, gilded sterling silver and oxidised sterling silver. Most of the designs can be assembled without tools, i.e. they can be reassembled every single day.
