It's all about the feeling

Annette Welander is a Swedish conceptual jewelry house founded in 2017 that empowers and emboldens the individual while embracing meaningful designs.


“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”Jane Jacobs


We are committed to the process of creating each collection and each piece, expanding beyond the visual to encourage the mind and inspire feelings of novelty or even strangeness. A single piece within a collection allows a discovery of ideas when traced from the tangible aesthetic structure to the creation, from the creation to the inspiration and conception, finally opening the eye to a wider universe of understanding. That understanding moves beyond the mere idea as Annette Welander is committed to the inclusion of every individual, embracing and encouraging a gender neutral set of ideals, leaving it up them to wear what feels right. A personal connection is essential. From the concept to the raw materials we seek to arrive at the essence of the element, combining technology and handcraftsmanship techniques to create truly unique pieces. These uniquely handcrafted pieces are influenced by cities and architecture, also drawing from minimalism and conceptualism. While the house’s implicit intention is to include thought-provoking poetry and architectural composition within the process, room is allowed for the wearer to interpret and provide definitive meaning. The personal is mixed with the historical and the cultural to emphasize self-expression and to encourage the realization of self.

WHOWE ARE


Annette Welander believes in working with a close and diverse group of people. Differences in age, skill, nationality, and gender are utilized to their fullest potentials, creating well-rounded and fully realized collections. As a house, we maintain a small close-knit circle of professionals who remain committed to expanding and developing the house and its perspectives.

His focus lies in not only the visual aesthetic but, maybe more importantly, the concept beneath what is initially perceived. He builds and breaks ideas in a chaotic cognition, underscoring the rupture within the artwork with expression. Minimal and with an industrial character, his main interest in art and design is to raise questions in the search for new approaches and meaning.
