My brand very much reflects who I am. I design new items that are my own style. I design pieces I love to wear for every day occasions as well as eye-catching statement pieces that stand out. My ambition is to make women shine when they wear my jewellery, that’s why all my pieces are set with sparkling cubic zirconia and are available at affordable prices.
I was born in Iceland and travelled Sweden and Italy where my love for jewellery grew before moving to Copenhagen where I established my brand. I met my husband Soren in Copenhagen and he is now the CEO of our company. Together we have a three-year-old son, Sixten – who is the cutest little mini-me.

I worked in the jewellery industry for years before establishing my own brand. I love to create and design... and I love being my own boss. When I established the company, I couldn’t see anything that looked the same as my style, so I decided to create a jewellery brand with an elegant and edgy design aesthetic.

Victoria Beckham. She’s such a cool cat and a caring mother. I love her attitude and her self-irony… and of course her amazing style.
My favourite part of my job is when I see women wear my jewellery and loving it. To see a woman’s joyful expression when gifted with a piece of jewellery simply melts my heart; that’s when I feel I have succeeded.

I don’t have a typical working day, but I’ll try to describe one anyway:
Read Sarah Zhaung’s Wonder Woman Wednesday profile to find out what this jewellery designer’s typical working day looks like.
1. I have a Harley Davidson motor bike and drive it whenever the weather permits.
2. As a child I dreamed of being an architect but after attending a candlestick moulding course I somehow ended up in jewellery. It’s funny how things take you on certain routes.
3. My secret addiction is Coca Cola – I can’t live without it.
4. I have three siblings and they all live in Iceland. I miss them but try to see them as often as possible.
5. My favourite vacation is skiing in the Alps, I love the mountains and the fresh air. I’m going to take our son there for the first time this coming season.
