Illuminating bud ...

It happens that a new crystal occur.  New, for us humans only...The minerals takes their time to grow inside the great mountains.... Rockcrystals grows in many different places. New is the one in my right hand brought in from Tibet, illuminating. The stone in my left hand is from Europe as we already know them.

I still wonder how to cut these wonders I got from K. Carol...


Creative days

Just returned from another creative retreat in the Northeastern part of Thailand, where i spend a few weeks in my studio-workshop based in Isaan. So much inspiration, joyfullness and sunshine.... Good to work with the group again...and...we now make our silkcords in new blue indigo color.

 

 


New windows ..

A year ago I went back to Barcelona... some holy days, not only because of Gaudi....

Of course I paid a visit to La Sagrada Familia during my stay, always curious to recognize the work in progress.

As the Windows-series’ delicious and cheerful enamel are based on the experience of seeing the light shine through a beautiful glass mosaic in a church, I was overwhelmed to experience the windows installed here, since my last visit.

Just like the unusual watercolor transparence of the enamel layer brings in the light and makes it into an indispensable part of the earrings, the same has to be experienced of the indoor, of this neverending story .


Let there be light ....

This is how I love to visualize on an early January day, from my Nordic corner .... A bright, warm and golden sunshine .... Still, I have faith in colors.


2013 ...

.. I will never forget about you - Nor will I miss you.

Though, in the bliss of a new year, I feel how big a transformation you were

              2013 - Let go, you are just a shadow now...

I´m back on my working bench, and welcome the new...

 

 


Heureka!

In itself the Globus ring looks unmistakably like a globe. The sphere is visible from all sides. The simplicity is pure mathematics. Circle stroke upon circle stroke the ring arises, at once voluminous and light due to the open design and the transparence of the pearl. There is no doubt that The Globus collection symbolizes a tribute to our earth. The pearl being clear rock crystal or slightly green prasiolit stands for clarity, purity, ice and air.....


With a resonance ...

Since I first started the Tactus Thailand project back in 2007, new ideas and new projects continue to bloom from this exchange. I brought the metals and the goldsmith’s craft. They had their silk and ancient weaving traditions. We meet in the actual work, the crafting. The Cocoon pendant is another result of this exchange. A pendant that goes with the Very Thin necklaces - or simply worn in a silk cord. It is also a bell, an important buddhist symbol. Something that gives ressonance.

 

Lige siden opstarten af Tactus Thailand projektet i 2007, bliver der ved med at opstå nye ideer og projekter fra dette møde. Jeg kom med metallerne og min guldsmede-baggrund. De havde silken og deres ældgamle silkeproduktion. Vi mødes i det konkrete arbejde, i håndværket. Cocoon vedhænget er et af resultaterne fra vores udveksling, et vedhæng til Very Thin kæderne eller ganske enkelt i en af silkesnorene. Det er også en klokke, et vigtigt buddhistisk symbol. Noget der giver ressonans.


It´s arrived !

I have looked so much forward for this. The booklet with the portraits just arrived from the printer.

I want to thank the photographer Lars G, whom I’ve worked with for nearly twenty years, and who took the pictures for this catalogue. And a big thank you to the women, who showed up for an authentic meeting in my studio.

Thinking of a portrait of the true you...? Then go for ...    Lars G

 

Idag kom hvad jeg længe har set frem til. Kataloget fra trykkeren og det kan hentes nårsomhelst, eller bed mig sende et eksemplar, det gør jeg med glæde.

Tak til fotografen Lars G, som jeg har samarbejdet med i snart tyve år, og som har taget billederne . Og en stor tak til kvinderne, der stillede op til et autentisk møde i mit værksted. Er selv temmelig vild med Louise her og hendes adgang til smykkerne.....

Tænker du på en sand gave... Et portræt af den du er ?   Tænk ...  Lars G


A Very Thin Necklace ...

 

 

December 1st. My advent calendar begins today....

I wanted to create a necklace that was alive. The result was a chain with enlarged links that becomes part of the woman who wears it. It constantly changes its form according to her movements. Each link is hand forged to make it strong – and incredibly thin. The links are sometimes studded with small diamonds and precious stones. The necklace makes me think of bubbles. Something that is both poetic and light. Like a foam of silver and gold. I call it ‘Very Thin’.

You will find a promotion on 10% throughout December on all Very Thin Necklaces.

Jeg ville lave en halskæde, der var levende. Resultatet var en kæde med forstørrede led, som bliver en del af kvinden, der bærer den. Kæden ændrer hele tiden sin form efter bevægelserne. De enkelte led er håndsmedede for at gøre dem stærke – og utroligt tynde. Leddene er nogengange besat med små diamanter og ædelsten. Kæden får mig til at tænke på bobler. Noget poetisk og let. En skum af sølv og guld. Jeg kalder den ‘Very Thin’.  Det er en sjov og legende kollektion, hvor kollektionens vedhæng fæstes på kryds og tværs med den lille hønseringlås.

Gennem hele december fratrækkes 10% ved køb af Very Thin halskæderne.


Sidhe... @Dusk

This time of the year...The darkness outside invites us to come together inside with the light of candles.  Angels and Santa´s elves ..hot drinks and spices, open up our senses for the more subtile dimensions ...I just love December.

My wonderful spiritual teacher and friend, Søren Hauge, will be a guest at Tactus@Dusk on December 9th 6PM. He will give an exiting lecture, about the Sidhe People... It is spiritual knowledge to enlighten us in the month of December.

 

Det er på denne tid af året, det tidlige mørke inviterer til samvær og hygge i stuerne. I en måned med engle og nisser...krydrede drikke af gamle opskrifter, åbner vi op for vores sanser til de mere subtile dimensioner....Jeg elsker december af hjertet.

Min dejlige spirituelle lærer, forfatter og idehistoriker Søren Hauge, gæster Tactus@Dusk, Mandag d. 9. December kl 18.00 til en aften hvor han indvier os i sin viden om Sidhe Folket. Søren fortæller :

Formålet med foredraget er at kaste lys på spørgsmålene: Hvem er Sidhe i virkeligheden? Hvorfor er det pludselig blevet aktuelt at vi lærer om Sidhe? Og hvad betydning har det for dem, os og Jorden?

Enlighteling November...

The day of the show was a highlight for me in a dark time in the Nordic year...  Co-creation in the fields of craftmanship as well as meeting the clients in the most beautiful of spaces....even the Royal Princess came to share her light with us....  Hope to see you there next year...
 

Showet blev et lysende højdepunkt for mig i en mørk tid af året. Godt arrangeret af Johnny Alexander Wichmann med den efterfølgende udstilling hvor alle kunne komme tæt på vores arbejder. H.K.H Prinsesse Benedicte der er protektor for opvisningen benyttede sig også af muligheden..Desuden et møde i håndværket der åbner for et nyt og anderledes samarbejde mellem fagene...hvad kan der ikke vokse imellem os..


Today is the day....

 

Today is the show, in the most beautiful location .. The Moltkes Palais... I am always impressed when come here. Based in the old city center of Copenhagen, the building shows sheer craftsmanship which has an interior so rich in detail...My showcase is now placed in the green salon...waiting for the day to begin...exiting... I will keep you posted from here..


Laugenes Opvisning

 

Once a year Danish craftsmanship is on show at Moltkes Palæ in Copenhagen. I enjoy sharing the day with my colleagues from the other creative fields...Jewelry is meant to be worn on the body but and on the catwalk it needs to be up scaled to be seen. It´s fun...here I tell the story of my handmade necklaces and pendants...they can be worn with an unlimited numbers of possibilities and no limitations, thanks to the small spiral clasp.... Get your ticket here for the show of the year!

Jeg lægger nu sidste hånd på smykkerne til dette års show og ser frem til endnu en dag sammen med mine kolleger fra de andre håndværkerlaug. Næste tirsdag i Moltkes Palæ med de smukke rum og lyskroner....skræddere, modister, guldsmede og buntmagere og måske et enkelt par konditorer mmmm.... Billetter sælges på Billetnet.dk


Mondays and Tuesdays Opening Times....and elements in progress...

My studio is now a part of Galerie Tactus, this is where my creating process happens.

This is also where I re-create old pieces of jewelry into something new and very personal. Most of us have a piece of jewelry that we never use, time changes, but the stones and materials do not.

You can contact me to schedule a meeting or just pass by to visit the showroom. Galerie Tactus will be open by appointments Mondays and Tuesdays 11.00-17.00 until Christmas.

Would you like to bring a piece of jewelry that means something to you out of the box..??  Jewelry is meant to be used....

 

 

 


So precious...

In 2011 I was given a perfume as a birthday present.... SAMA "Louppes des Steppes". From the very first smell, I knew this was something different...so pure. In a way to connected me with Mother Earth, and helped me stay grounded. Ever since SAMA has be a part of my everyday...each and everyday, whatever day it is...There are five SAMA perfumes, all created by Sandrine Giordanengo.

Sandrine has visited Tactus twice this year, the most recent in September, when Maria Kentorp from the newspaper BORSEN visited Galerie Tactus. Borsen has written about Sandrine and SAMA in an article published this week.

Let it be your time to bring your essences out...you can receive 10% celebration discount from all SAMA products in the shop, by entering SAMA10 at the second checkout page. 


A statement ..

I am back on my workingbench to finish a commission....Another Lily-Pad ring. And the ring is large! It makes a real statement. It is a tribute to womanhood. We don’t have to be small and discreet, just because we are women. 

Jeg er tilbage ved mit guldsmedebord og lægger sidste hånd på en bestilling...Endnu en Lily-Pad ring. Og ringen er stor. Et rigtigt statement. Den er en hyldest til kvinder. Vi behøver ikke at være små og diskrete, bare fordi vi er kvinder. 

 

 

 


Lily

I call this ring "Lily" because it reminds me of a Water lily surfacing on a pond. Lily flowers are also about essence. They grow and bloom even in muddy waters. To me they represent a truly feminin quality - earthbound and pure.

Jeg kalder denne ring for ‘Lily’. Den minder mig om en åkande i et vandhul. Åkandeblomster handler om kernen. De vil vokse og blomstre selv om vandet er mudret. For mig repræsenterer de en særlig kvindelig kvalitet – jordbunden og ren.
