Cod Collection by Kria

Cod Collection by Kria

New York-based Icelandic designer Jóhanna Methúsalemsdóttir of Kria based this collection of jewellery on the shapes of cod fish bones.

Cast in silver and brass, the Cod Collection includes earrings and pendants on silver cable-chain.

We spotted the jewellery while visiting Reykjavik for DesignMarch, which took place from 22 to 25 March – see our photos from studio visits and a walking architecture tour here.

Here are some more details from Kria:


Introducing the Cod Collection by Kria, a study of the form of a fish which has sustained the designer’s culture.

Cod Collection by Kria

From a discarded skeleton, Kria extracts details in Nature to create objects with which one can ritualise and project their imagination.

Cod Collection by Kria

The Kria jewellery collection is handmade by Jóhanna Methúsalemsdóttir in New York City.

Cod Collection by Kria

This continues a theme from previous collections of exploring ritualism with objects collected from the shores of Iceland and North America and re-imagining artifacts in a continuing veneration of natural form and the spirituality they evoke – the abdomen shell of a crayfish, the vertebrae of a transoceanic migratory bird, the bud of a flowering tree branch, the teeth of sheep, the lost talon of a barn owl – with mysticism and magic inherent in the human existence.

Cod Collection by Kria

The inspiration for Kria was found on a black lava beach in eastern Iceland in 2006 when Jóhanna Methúsalemsdóttir found a skeleton of an artic tern, or Kria in Icelandic, nestled in the sand.

With the birth of her second daughter soon after came the birth of the Kria collection in 2007.
