In Iceland, everything is expensive. If you’re going to visit, it really helps to get a room with a kitchen, so you can save some money on food by cooking for yourself. I got a room with a kitchen when I visited, that enabled me to buy some pretty jewelry. I brought back a handcrafted, one-of-a-kind piece (I met the artist!) made from silver and basalt (Iceland itself).
I discovered the shop in downtown Reykajavik; you can see a lot more of her beautiful jewelry here – Gullsmiðja Hansínu Jens. On the home page of the shop’s website, there is even a picture of the model wearing my ring:
I love my gorgeous lava (basalt) ring!
