The jewellery collection FLY is inspired by the art of fly tying, designed by Steinunn Vala for Hring eftir hring. It is handmade the same way a fly fishing angler would create his artificial fishing fly.
The bracelets are adjustable, so one size fits all.
"In the times we live today I often miss the tasks that have been replaced by machines and technology and I wonder how much it has affected our lives in a way that makes it more stressful. I do love my dishwasher and I would rather give up my car and half of my home then my washing machine. But doing the dishes by hand can be so relaxing and walking to the store can give you time to reflect on your life and rest your brain. It can give you the space you need for a new idea or at least improve your health. Today we don't have time to knit a sweater, fix broken things (a task that is so satisfying), read books or create our fishing flies by hand and I really miss all that. I miss killing time. I miss seeing grown up anglers with large hands, binding fur, feathers and tiny handpicked materials on a hook. Sitting on a river bench or inside their dirty truck, out in nature. I miss sitting with my mother and her friends knitting, something I haven't done in years. So, if not for anything else then simply my satisfaction, as well as too keep the idea and knowledge alive, I have created the Fly collection."
