Introducing our new Crossing Lines collection...

At Astrid and Miyu we are always on the lookout for young new talent, so last April we launched the Design Project. The second collection of the project, collaborating with young aspiring designers, this collection has been created by recent graduate Rebecka Arnberg. The collection includes stackable rings, ear cuffs and bracelets.


Inspired by the structure of traditional wooden houses. The interest in this structure was sparked by the way logs meet and join into each other, yet crossover as individual lines. Reflecting the Scandinavian individualism and gender equality, the pieces were made to embrace and enhance the beauty and strength of its wearer, female or male. With principles of minimalism seen in its aesthetics, the Crossing Lines collection is perfect for everyday use, to help you take that extra step.

Rebecka, the designer behind her first ever collection with Astrid & Miyu recently graduated from Central St Martins last year. Rebecka spent the last two years working in our central London stores to gain more experience within the jewellery industry. Describing the collection’s inspiration Rebecka explains “I come from a really small town in the middle of Sweden. So the collection really centers around the simplicity of Sweden and Swedish architectural designs. I thought it was an interesting concept to see how small elements mix to make something large and beautiful. The collection is inspired by my heritage and the exposure I have had to architecture which I thought was a unique approach to jewellery design. I also thought this would allow me to create a collection totally different for people to enjoy wearing.”

Dedicated to investing in new talent, Astrid & Miyu’s Founder Connie Nam decided to create the Design Project. When asked why the launch of the Design Project was so important Connie said, “Whilst living in London for the last 9 years working with various creatives I’ve always been impressed by how much creative talent there is in the city, and how brands aren’t taking advantage of this. I came across Matilde Mozzanega and Rebecka Arneberg, both final year students at Saint Martins, looked at their portfolio and decided to work with them to launch the first collections for the Design Project. I am planning on launching one collection a year with design students going forward to support young design talent and also get inspired by their fresh perspectives!”.
