It is in Paris, France where Danish jewelry artist Tobias Wistisen can be found handcrafting his incredible line of jewelry. It was also in this city that Wistisen attended international design institute ESMOD and where he got his start in the industry training under British iconic fashion designer
John Galliano. Wistisen combines classic Scandinavian design with Paris’ culture of haute couture to create accessories with a well-worn masculine appeal. Wistisen utilizes elements such as metal, leather, and bone to create work that possesses a raw, animalistic quality—characteristics exemplified by a necklace featuring a cluster of stitched-lipped, shrunken heads or a bracelet linked with sterling silver vertebrae.
