About Kaja Gjedebo

Jewellery designer Kaja Gjedebo in her workshop
Established 2002
Kaja Gjedebo studied both jewellery and furniture design at Edinburgh College of art. This divergence of skill is apparent in the wide range of designs of KGD.
Kaja has designed and made jewelry since 2002. Her trademark is sculptural collections combining natural forms with delicate construction.
Her in-house studio is part of an artist residential area by the forest outside Oslo, where she design and make all her prototypes.
She is not led by trends, but rather by personal interests. The result is elegant and timeless jewellery, combining natural forms with delicate construction. Gjedebo’s talent lies in her skill to manipulate and arrange the very small.
