I love making earthy, modern, edgy yet sophisticated jewelry. I have fallen in love with ancient techniques that I now integrate into my jewelry. Looking back, everything I had been doing before attending the classes of Assamblage School of Contemporary Jewelry was but a quest for meaning. Today I can lay my cards on the table and say that I love glittery things and that I am fascinated by the metal’s behavior, which sometimes conducts itself as a liquid, and sometimes as a solid. I also love the way people enjoy wearing my jewels. It’s a kind of unique appreciation, a feeling that what you created makes sense, is worthwhile.
Freya - The Goddess of Love:
This collection explores the idea of femininity on a conceptual level. In Nordic mythology Freya is the goddess associated with love, fertility and beauty. This collection aims to bring forward these feminine qualities which we have forgotten to appreciate in relation to the masculine qualities. Not being accustomed to quantifying women’s powers and gifts, they remain in the shadow and are not as appreciated as the masculine ones. Most often the male approach to success is measurable. But how can we quantify the gifts a woman makes: love, care for children, deep connection in the family, in society? How can you quantify the subtle ways of influencing and living a life that feels good instead of one that looks good? Femininity itself is a power. Even in modern society we still get stricken by stereotypes trying to convince us that it is our weakness, when, in fact, it is our greatest gift.
