For Janne Riisnes, designing her own jewellery has become a survival technique in the face of chronic illness and isolation. The bedbound Norwegian artist now dreams of sustaining her small business JSM Design. In the beginning, surfing the internet was her only hobby, until one day she came across some pearls in an online store. She ordered the pearls and discovered that she could make bracelets in bed without further exhausting herself. “I quickly got hooked. I entered a creative flow that made me forget about time and space. Within a short time, I had made a bag full of bracelets,” says Riisnes.
