New tutorial - Find your signature style!

I have finally written down the step-by-step method I´ve been teaching in Stockholm - FIND YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE!

About the tutorial
This tutorial describes a step-by-step method that will help you find your own signature style. It is also very useful when building collections.

The jewelry making world is ful of fun techniques and beautiful materials. It´s easy to get lost and never find your own style when options are unlimited. But with this method you will gather all your loose ends together and finally find your own path.

When I´ve tought classes this method it is always a reward to see the processes this method starts.

But remember this instruction only offers a path to follow. Only you know where it will lead.

Material needed:
  • a nice sketch book
  • piles of magazines
  • catalogues from various stores
  • scissors
  • glue
  • your head and heart
  • pens to write and colour with

You can buy the tutorial either at my Etsy-shop: or at

Little Mermaid - wirewrapped necklace with turquoise, aquamarine

I really don´t have the time, or enough material at home, but I felt I just had to play with wires again. This pendant is made of left overs, both chains and bits of wire. It´s all made with stones in soothing turquoise and sea foam green. And the size and shape of the pendant is perfect for a shirt with a button open or a v-neck top.

The pendant and chain is adorned with a collection of stones - turquoise, alexandrite topaz, chrysocolla and malachite. Attached to the pendant you also find jade and a beautiful shimmering aquamarine. From the extension chain hangs a lovely faceted chrysoprase briolette. It´s a collection worthy a little mermaid!

The patina gives the necklace a nice feeling of old times.

Size: pendant, including bail, 6cm. Chain 42-46cm
Material: turquoise, alexandrite topaz, chrysocolla, malachite, jade, aquamarine, chrysoprase, oxidized sterling silver.

You´ll find it listed in my Etsy shop:
