C for Close-up in the Blogging from A to Z challenge, about online jewellery collections.
With the risk of stating the obvious: Online collections with top quality photos let you see the pieces really close.
Here an example from – again – the digital collection Smycken, offered by Nordiska Museet in Stockholm.
Now, here is what I really wanted to show you: the ten highlights in Guldkorn, which is an app. Guldkorn simply means grain of gold, a way to say the best of the best, a treasure.
So, in Guldkorn, you first choose what device you’re on (dator/computer or surfplatta/tablet). Then you can click on any of the pieces to study them more closely and read about them. For the text, you always find an English version too.
I find the Sture ring extremely fascinating, both for the drama’s around the people it (probably) belonged to, and for the skills to make such a piece!
What’s your favourite among the ten?
