High quality handcrafted
sustainable fashion jewellery from Scandinavia
I create straight from the wires. I hardly ever draw anything at all. I just do it. I love to have long walks with my pack of parson russell terriers and while walking I usually have my best ideas. My brains work best when I am on a move, that is my way of working. When I get home I just sit beside my desk and make my ideas into life. This is pretty much my life in general - walking with my doggies while creating design ideas in my head and coming home and making them into real.
All my pieces are hand crafted of high quality materials - sustainable made natural gemstones and gold, silver or bronze wires. I have created my own technique which is called Scandinavian wire wrapping. It is wire wrapping with Scandinavian purity, rich in details without being heavy or overdone. Hammering is one of my techniques to deal the strongest wires and coiling is the one for finest wires.
The reason why I loved to use natural precious stones is simply that they look more powerful, more "rough" instead of being just sparkling. I love to combine fine and meticulous details made of fine wires with more rough looking precious stones. Natural Blue Sapphires used in Byzantion collection has the "role" of Terra and Natural Blue Aquamarines have the role of Air, Wind and Water - as they come with a variety of more transparent ice looking and bright light blue beads. The Gold reflects the Sun, Energy and Power - as it makes the blue tones alive and really kicking.
