My jewellery designs are characterised by the well-known Nordic simplicity, and yet the design is entirely its own. The Nordic tradition is artfully broken by contrasting materials and innovative use or a background story with a touch of humour.

 

The jewellery appeals to both women and men who want to stand out for both everyday and special occasions and still be stylish.

 

My jewellery is designed and produced in Denmark by me.
