Here, we ask designers to take a selfie and give us an inside look at their life.
Occupation: Jewelry designer.
Studio location: Copenhagen.
Describe what you make: I like to think of my creations as wearable miniature pieces of art that transcend the boundaries of traditional jewelry. My pieces are like enchanted sculptures, telling captivating stories that unfold with every glance. I sculpt intricate pieces that weave together the rich tapestry of my Middle Eastern and Nordic heritage, resulting in breathtaking and culturally infused designs that captivate the senses.
The most important thing you’ve designed to date: Choosing just one is like asking a mother to pick her favorite child! Each piece I craft holds a special place in my heart. But if I had to choose, I would say my most recent masterpiece—an extraordinary men’s necklace that exudes tribal vibes, crafted from solid yellow gold. Its sheer presence and boldness make a powerful statement. And, of course, the bespoke wedding ring I designed, featuring a dazzling three-carat diamond, along with a set of matching rings for the couple. Pieces like these hold a special place in my heart.
Describe the problem your work solves: My work is a form of artistic alchemy, a channel for the visions and emotions that reside within me. By creating high jewelry I help people translate their deepest thoughts and desires into tangible treasures that become part of their personal narratives. It’s something really special and comes with great responsibility as we create timeless heirlooms that transcend time and connect generations.
Describe the project you are working on now: Ah, the atelier is buzzing with creative energy, and there are countless projects in the works. I’m diving headfirst into a thrilling collaboration with a dear friend, bringing together our unique perspectives and talents. It has been a long time coming, and I can’t wait to unveil the result later this year.
A new or forthcoming project we should know about: We’re embarking on a thrilling venture by opening our very first store in Copenhagen, slated to launch this August during Copenhagen Fashion Week. This milestone holds a special place in my heart as it allows me to open the doors of my atelier and invite you into our universe.
What you absolutely must have in your studio: In my studio, music is the lifeblood that fuels my creative fire. The rhythm and melodies transport me to a realm where imagination knows no bounds. And I surround myself with mesmerizing artwork, unconventional sculptures, and eclectic objects that speak to my soul, infusing the space with an ethereal vibe that sparks inspiration.
What you do when you’re not working: When I’m not immersed in the enchantment of my craft, I seek refuge in moments of serene bliss, in silence. Exploring the world around me, indulging in delightful wine and engaging conversations with cherished friends, and immersing myself in the sheer beauty of nature’s palette. These experiences replenish my spirit and rejuvenate my creative energy.
Sources of creative envy: I draw immense inspiration from the fearless spirit of artists like Frida Kahlo, who fearlessly defied conventions and channeled their emotions into vibrant expressions of art. Their boundless creativity and ability to push boundaries ignite a fire within me, spurring me to continually explore new frontiers in my own craft.
The distraction you want to eliminate: In this fast-paced world, the one distraction I strive to eliminate is the incessant noise of everyday life. Achieving moments of pure tranquility and stillness allows me to delve deeper into my creative process, enabling me to create with undivided focus and passion.
