aurum


Iceland is already high on my list of places I'd love to visit, but aurum just kicked it up a few notches. Located in Reykjavik, it's the showcase for jewellery designer Guðbjörg Kr. Ingvarsdóttir. Her designs have all the hallmarks of that Nordic style I love so much. And if you were wondering, that letter ð in her name (or capital Ð) is the "eth" — originally used in Irish writing and now found only in Old English and Icelandic, it's pronounced like the "th" in "them." Yesterday, math. Today, linguistics. Tune in tomorrow for a lesson in microbiology! Just kidding. Or am I?
