Yoara jewellery is inspired by the wilderness, the occult, primitive arts and forests. All with a dark twist. Life is too short to be boring and to remain in a cage. Break free, howl at the moon and leave conformity.
Jewellery holds the power to be a point of focus. It serves as a tool to remind us about our common heritage. To use a Yoara creation is to celebrate your inner wildling. It is a compass of the wild while navigating in concrete jungles, office deserts or other unhuman environments.
The shaman punk style is a fusion of my interests in the occult and dark alternative music. I hope that this planet can be a little more wild and free with the creations that I make.
Materials used are often bones. No animals are killed to become parts of the jewellery. All animal parts are road kills, left over from small farms or gifts from hunters; things that otherwise would have been wasted. To use these parts is a way of honoring the animal and bring beauty back from death. A part of an endless cycle. This is very important to me.
Behind Yoara is Maria Kindgren, living in a small village in southern Sweden. Creating otherwordly jewellery since 2008.
Yoara visits festivals such as Wave Gotik Treffen, Castle Fest, Gamrocken, Gefle Metal Festival amongst many other markets and fairs.
