Marianne

Marianne (in the white blouse), Tel Aviv, 1961
In 1961 Marianne, the grandmother of All Blues co-founder Jacob Skragge, bought a necklace made of 37 Amber stones in Israel. In 2016 she passed away, wishing for neither her body nor belongings to end up forgotten in a box, but rather spread with the wind. Our homage to this wish was to make 37 earrings, each baring one of the stones from the necklace. One was given to her daughter, one to Jacob and 35 spread to the rest of the world. During her trip to Israel in 1961, photographer Dimitrios Harrisiadis captured the people, culture, architecture and nature of the country. The image on the first spread of his book After Exodus, portraying a busy walking street in Tel Aviv, features Marianne on her way to the market. All 37 earrings were made by hand in the All Blues production house outside Stockholm and numbered. The curation, product design, photography and visuals are made by Fredrik Nathorst, the other co-founder of All Blues.
