Medals

Medals is a humorous series of jewellery made from pure white acrylic with coloured bands of yellow, green and pink. They address everyday heroes and heroines, taking as their inspiration classical medals featuring a cross-, crown- or star shape. Larsen was inspired to design these medals while still a student, intrigued with the prestige typically associated with distinctions and insignias. The medals were later reworked at the National Workshops for Arts and Crafts. Larsen’s medals can be used both as personal ornaments and for display in the home. The caricatured medals are available in 36 different distinctive combinations.

Inger Margrethe Larsen

b. 1971, Danish Designer

Larsen graduated in 2002 from the Royal College of Art in London. She designs jewellery, clothes and accessories for men and women, and her challenging and experimental jewellery designs have been exhibited both in Denmark, England and the United States. She has a characteristic way of melding jewellery and clothing, to achieve highly interesting results. One example is a bracelet, created by silver-plating the cuffs of a shirt. Another distinctive contribution is a series of brooches entitling all who wear them to a medal, regardless of age and status. Larsen utilizes an extensive range of materials. She works in metal, plastics, textile and fish skin, depending on the task at hand. Her means of expression are fundamentally defined by her ideas. She always aims to bring an element of humour into her work as a distinguishing characteristic. She was awarded the Kunsthåndværkerprisen af 1879 bronze medal in 2003.
