Jewelry Video of the Week: De Grisogono shows their fun side!

5 things that working in jewelry has taught me

5 things that working in jewelry has taught me

Ever since I laid my eyes on jewelry, way back in the late ‘80’s, I have fallen in love with the world of jewelry. Although I had my moments of deep love for a certain piece of jewelry, it has always been about the business around jewelry for me. Sales and marketing on one side, creativity, craftsmanship, and strategy on the other side. And I have learned so much along the way! Here are the 5 things that working in the world of jewelry has taught me:

Magical Jewelry from the sea

Magical Jewelry from the sea

Miles from land and deep into the ocean lives a completely different reality. This is the abyss, a world that we know so little about, yet in our fantasy, we imagine the fiercest, largest and perhaps scariest creatures living there. And we are not wrong. Some of the animals living here have evolved the ability to create their own light with a technique known as bioluminescence. Others have grown to gigantic proportions, with even more gigantic creatures, such as the sperm whale. 

This alien world of wonders have inspired us creating stories, books and art. This world of wonders is also an endless inspiration for the creators of fantastic jewelry. Jewelry inspired by the ocean myths and wonders, that’s the world we would love to drag you into, in this blog.

The most incredible jewelry at the TEFAF 2017

TEFAF 2017 was once again an extraordinary event. I love to visit it, because it hosts some of the most amazing jewelry brands in this world. But it’s not just that. Visiting trade fairs is an inspiring experience, but visiting a fair where clients come instead of business peers, it is a completely different experience. Somehow, I feel even more excited and I love to observe how the public looks at the jewelry. How the public reacts to collections and creations.

Hi there! On my blog I love to share my passion and enthusiasm for jewelry with you! I have a long background filled with international experience in the jewelry branch and hope to deliver you many hours of fun, reading and watching amazing pieces. Combined with fashion or with themes that play in all of our lives. Children, happiness, gifts, memories…A piece of jewelry is often a piece of art. But it becomes only valuable when emotions are added to it.

I have lived a long time in Italy and you might catch that here and there in my love for Italian jewelry, but I have learned since starting this blog, that there is so much more out there in the world! I discover new brands, new markets and new visions almost every week. And I ADORE to share that with you!
