Eve Margus-Villems’ Citrinitas Borealis is a kind of paraphrase of the northern lights phenomenon, in which the colour spectrum is influenced by the continuous but imperceptible presence of the moon. This work is just as changeable as the light in northern climates, and an essential characteristic of it is transformation. Light is able to transform amber into anything; it can transform amber into a berry or any other object, including the human form.

Margus-Villems graduated from the Metal Arts Department of the Estonian Academy of Arts (1998) and currently works as a lecturer in the Academy’s Jewellery and Blacksmithing Department. Since the late 1990s she has actively exhibited her work throughout Europe. In 2000 she received the Roman Tavast annual award for young jewellery designers. Her work has been included in a variety of publications and can be found in public and private collections, including the Museum of Applied Art and Design in Tallinn and the Museum of Watch-making and Enamels in Geneva.
