Welcome to my site! I work as a costume-designer and an artist, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

Wall-jewelry

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

In addition to the abstract oil painting, I am also working on a 3D collage. It´s a mix of techniques used in book-binding, jewelry-making and traditional collage. These will become little pictures to hang on the wall. If I had mounted them differently, they could have been necklaces, hence the title: jewelry for the wall! […]

ancester wall

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

I made this is a class with Susan Lenart Kazmer. Originally meant to be a big pendant for a necklace, it is a booklet, with pages to flip. In between are pictures of my grandfather, and his work-collegues at the factory where he was working. It´s a bit big for me to actually wear it […]

A new necklace

Monday, May 6th, 2013

My Sunday-fun-project was making this necklace. In the States, I managed to squeeze in a visit to Michael´s, where I found a couple of “beads” from Susan Lenart Kazmer. I really like her style, the maximalistic, overloaded steampunk, or maybe we can call it “junkpunk”. She uses all sorts of found object, and gives them […]

recycled silk bracelet

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I´m down with the flu, and it´s boooooring! Spending whole days doing nothing, wanting to be creative, with heeps that needs doing. Lacking the energy though, this is all I managed to do… a 5-minute bracelet make-over. Using a regular thin bangle, I wrapped it in recycled silk thread. A small drop of glue to […]

steampunk book pendant

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

One more mini book in the necklace pendant series. This time black salmon-leather, with a lead raven´s head and an enameled “clock-wheel”.

necklace assemblage

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

I´m back home, and it´s time to finish some of the things I´ve been working on while in the boathouse. I managed to put together 20 mini-books, and tonight I´ve started assembling them. I´m using big, enameled beads I made last fall at Art&Soul. As I started putting them together I couldn´t help myself, I […]

the ICEresin-silk necklace

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

A little late-nite arting resulted in this necklace made from sari silk, rayon ribbon, plastic, ICEresin and some metal beads. The middle part is see-through.

Inspiration: Sandy Martin

Friday, June 8th, 2012

I met Sandy Martin at Artfest this year. She´s a colorful & wonderful jewelry-artist from Santa Fe, USA. An energy-explosion of a woman! I am so lucky, I just got two little miniature art girls from her. One of them will go in my little gallery-pendant-book. The other one I´ll put on my inspiration-board. Don´t […]

recycled jewelry

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

In the spirit of recycling instead of buying new: 2 necklaces, two pairs of earrings, beads and stones that have been lying around unused for a long time are now put together into one “brand new” necklace. Now maybe I´ll have to dig out my old gypsy-hippie tunics to match
