Millie Behrens studied at The National College of Art and Design in Oslo, Norway and graduated in 1983. She now exhibits her work both nationally and internationally and, in 2014, completed a commission for the Queen of Norway's tiara and jewellery collection. Now based just outside Oslo and inspired by nature and geometry, she creates jewellery using mainly silver and combines other materials such as pebbles she has found on beaches across the world.
'The complexity and beauty of geometry fascinates me. When i create my jewellery, I am inspired by the shapes, lines and patterns that I discover in nature, such as plough furrows in a fields, the branches of a tree, or pebbles on the beach. I often combine these images with geometric shapes and constructions.'
