Helle and Åsa
Helle and Åsa met in 2002 when they were both studying jewellery at HDK School of Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg. In 2004, they were working on a project together for a course which was so successful that they decided to continue working together and consequently registered the trademark WURMA under which they produce their jewellery together.
