Koldt ned ad ryggen

I was asked to make a choker for a jewelry exhibition. A choker is a necklace that is very tight around the neck and often very nasty to wear. It comes into fashion every now and then but never seem to hang around for long. Possibly because it isn't as nice to wear as the very popular sautoir.
Finding it very hard to create such a piece I decided to make a very thin line of silver at the front of the neck and from that; a drop of silver that runs down the back and possibly send shivers down your spine, which is why it's called 'Koldt ned ad ryggen'
I'm pleased with the result that can be seen next weekend with lots of other chokers, at the yearly get-togeather of trades people within the gold and silver industry in Denmark, in Bellacenter. After that It'll be on display at the SAS-hotel at Vesterport.

Summer's almost gone...

No no no, not yet!!!! It's only the beginning of August and we've just survived a very rainy July.
I've always loved the month of August; being revitalized upon a good long summer holiday and thrilled about the beginning of something new. Enjoying the long warm lazy afternoons in the mild sun, hoping for a round of indian summer. Lots of fine weddings that has to be held before the nordic nature again turn cold and harsh. Plums and pears and lots of ice cream...ohhh yes, ice cream...
I've made this ice cream spoon for carrying in your pocket so you don't have to use the colourfull plastic ones you get at ice cream bars. They are simply too small and too plasticky!
