Hege Nolop is a Norwegian jewelry designer based in Santa Barbara, California. Her career began in Paris, France; creating rustic pieces with vintage elements hand-picked from antique markets. Since then her work has evolved to incorporate the simplicity and elegance of her Scandinavian design roots. It features free-flowing, organic patterns, soft curves, and a strong inspiration from nature. The result is a clean, contemporary aesthetic that remains faithful to Scandinavian old-world craftsmanship.
Hege is trained in metalsmithing and enameling at the Glassell School of Art in Houston. She also studied chasing and repousse at the studio of Davide Bigazzi in Florence, Italy. She works in sterling silver and with enamel on copper, to create hand-made pieces that are one of a kind.
