I'm a jewelry designer who values traditional handicraft methods. When I design something new, I strive to make a physical model that I can touch and try on. I also have a great passion for Murano glass bead making and master the centuries old technique of lampworking.
My passion for jewelry design started back in 2004, when I was about fourteen years old. Two years later, I moved to Tammisaari to study and graduated as an artisan goldsmith in 2010. That year I also founded my freelance company Alva Henriksson Design.
Currently I live in Helsinki and work as a freelancer. Besides designing jewelry, my career also includes working as a teacher and as a salesperson in various grocery stores. My plans for the future is to develop as an artist and build my career as a freelance jewelry designer.

The Reflection pendant is my most popular design. Right now I'm working on getting the collection into production.
