The design of the pin

The design of the first pin (London 2007) was by Jeroen Harthoorn

He wrote:

I was especially inspired by the network of women who support,
stimulate and motivate one another. The network is visualised by putting the female symbols in a square. One of the women is accentuated as a small rose in the form of a little ruby in a gold setting. 

 

The design of the second pin (Oslo 2009) whitch also was used in Baden Baden 2011 was by Martijn Verkade.

I find Jeroens design very inspiring and my design is in silver, one woman is special and she is in gold and in the centre of the group (ruby) She is cherished and supportedby the organisation of women, the other female symbols. The ruby can also be seen as the rose that symbolises the DKG society.

The pin 2009 and 2011

The design of the pin in Amsterdam 2013 was by Fríða Jónsdóttir.

 

Many of us were raised by knitting mothers and grandmothers, the memories of which bring us back to magical moments of peace and calm.
Knitting harmonises well with the culture of DKG and no less the knitting basket that can be the cradle of our community, where our work interweaves and we each pitch in to knit for the basket. The red stone is our ball of yarn in the basket.
The basket is from the knitting inspired line-up “knit and purl”. The basket mold was made for a jewellary exhibition in Copenhagen in 2012, with the theme “roots” in the sense how one's roots influence one's jewellary design.
The artist, Fríða Jónsdóttir, graduated as a goldsmith in 1992. She has studied in Iceland and Copenhagen but started designing and making her own jewellary in 1999.
More on the artist can be found on her website, http://www.fridaskart.is/
