‘Like humans
insects evolved
with survival strategies such as attack, flight, hibernation and camouflage’


Gjersen-Sav has shown her jewellery at several exhibitions, including Naturens Juveler at Svendborgs Naturama in 2019, where Danish and international artisan jewellers interpreted nature’s elements. . This year, 28-30 September 2023, Tina Gjersen-Sav jewellery will be on show in the Smykkernes By (“City of Jewellery”) exhibition around Copenhagen. Here the designer will be showing at Muji in the Illum department store with 3 other artisan goldsmiths. The group’s Danish title theme Jordforbindelser highlights the human disconnect from nature. Another upcoming exhibition in March-May 2024 will feature jewellery from 40 artisan goldsmiths on the theme of classic cinema. This exhibition venue will be 3 cinemas in Copenhagen/Frederiksberg, Viborg and Odense.

What happens when you unite the skilled precious-metal worker’s craft with art, science and arts & culture outreach? With the aim of engaging further with the world of art, Gjersen-Sav is in the process of exploring the possibility of releasing her HABITAT project as an exhibition. Through 101 freely interpreted insect-inspired art jewellery designs and accompanying habitats, personality and message, she philosophises on human behaviour and survival strategies in a world facing a biodiversity crisis. As part of the exhibition, she is experimenting with the idea of involving biologists and general scientists to provide spoken-word presentations on the decline in insect populations and the loss of habitats. By allying science with the art of precious metal working, the aim is to raise awareness of the state of the planet and our role in biodiversity loss. The idea is for the exhibition to be mounted at an art gallery or science museum.

Showroom in

As an artisan goldsmith, Tina has a studio and showroom in Svendborg, Funen, which is open to visitors interested in viewing and purchasing works and trying them on. Quite literally.
