Tromsø view

Chillin' on top of a mountain in Tromsø

Where I live

Took some time off today and went with my sweetheart boyfriend to the popular local Gondola that takes you up to a gorgeous mountain plateau where you have the most amazing view of Tromsø and all it's islands.
Took some pictures while we were up there to show you all where I live and how amazingly beautiful this area is.

I am thinking about having a sale in my Etsy shop next weekend. I am working on some cute new "organic" earrings that will take part in my sale! Stay tuned!

A busy week

Back again from a busy week of creating new and exciting pieces.
Here are some of my new designs! :-)

An early morning

Well, couldn't sleep so well last night, so I got up, and here I am, 5 AM on a sunshine rich early sunday morning.
I just checked my Etsy shop and noticed that one of my favorite pieces from my new collection has sold! http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=9580880
It's a great feeling when people appreciate and support my work. Makes me hungry to create more and better things. That's what I love about jewelry design. One has to grow and evolve in this business, otherwise things get boring, and besides, I always like learning new techniques and ways of doing things. That makes the whole design process so much more fun for me. 
Thinking about going out on an early ( and quiet ) photo-shoot. I love this time of day when things are quiet, it's soothing to me. Off I go....

The worlds northernmost botanical garden

Last night my boyfriend John and I went for a photography trip to the local botanical garden. With the midnight sun on our side it was a fantastic experience to take a look at some of of the northernmost plants. 
We haven't had much of a summer here in Tromsø this year. Tromsø is located at 69 degrees north which is just above the arctic circle.
Today it's raining and I will spend some time here in my studio being creative. Planning on doing a bit more water casting with melted silver.

Back again

Wow, I feel like I finally have the time to continue with my blog. I'm not a very creative writer and often have difficulties figuring out what to write. I will give it another try though and see where it leads me.
Been working immensely  on a new line of sterling silver jewelry. Very simple, yet classy and timeless. I really like the look of a silver pendant on natural leather string. Something earthy and organic about it. I love it. 
Been posting some of those new pieces on Etsy this past week. I will be adding more jewelry this weekend! Looks like it is going to be another rainy weekend, so I am planning on spending some more time in my studio to, guess what? Create more jewelry!
