The creative studio of Arctida is situated in the 750 year old city of Stockholm in Sweden. However, the inspiration for Alecia’s (the artist her self) jewelry is taken from much farther north where she was born and grew up, from the polar circle all the way up to the North Pole. The name Arctida refers to the hypothetical polar continent that is believed to exist in the geological past of our planet.
The northern nature with its crisp polar nights and gleaming Northern lights is the main inspiration source for of all of her art. Each individual piece of Alecia’s jewelry is created with the ideas and influences from the world of the lone Scandinavian mountains that astonish with their untouched landscape and wandering flock of wild reindeer, then on to the even more remote, uninhabited world of ice, populated only by the seals and polar bears.
Through this source of inspiration as well as her interest in natural science (she works as a molecular biologist/cancer researcher at her day job) Alecia is able to create unique pieces of art with both inner and outer power and genuine "one of a kind" – design.
