One of the best accessory shops in Copenhagen is Pico. They produce their own product design in their own workshop ranging from scarves and shoes to jewellery and hair accessories. They have an online store as well. The materials for the jewellery are sterling silver or goldplated sterling silver. The price range is low and the quality high.

The interior of the shop is something out of an old grocery shop with wooden shelves and glass display mounts. You can get all the items in almost every colour.

Scarves en every colour.

Hairbands

Glitter, neon, leather and more.

Bows for every taste.

Graphics for Bloesem Kids Wear Neon by Marjon Hoogervorst

Bloesem (consists of both Bloesem Living and Bloesem Kids) has been a favourite blog of mine for some time and I am happy to find out that they have launched a kids wear jewellery collection.

All the images are from their website.

Photographs by An Van Daele

You can buy them online here. The materials they used are: Swarovski crystals, neon threads of elastic and cotton and for the closing they have used 9.25 sterling silver.

They are definitely on my summer wishlist ♥

Sailor button earrings from Kawaiicph sweater from Petit Bateau

I bought some vintage buttons in a second hand store and made some jewellery from them. It is very easy to make these earrings:

First you cut of the button part with a diagonal cutter. The backside needs to be flat.

Then you glue on the earring studs, so simple, I gave them a lacquer coating afterwards so they are shiny and more durable.

I love the naive and romtantic graphics you find in old-school tattoos.

Bikini from my vintage pin-up magazine goes nicely with the sailor style, would love one like it…

Turning used Lego parts into grown-up toys. These ear studs are very small.

Lego means “I assemble / put together” in Latin and this toy continues to surprise in its ability to generate new ideas in the people “Lego-ing”. Even grown-ups find themselves engulfed in this game, and with a 4 year old in the house I have a perfect excuse to play..

It really requires patience to drill holes in hard plastic with a heated needle, so I took a break after doing one pink “diamond” Lego earring…

Fu manchu beard and Frankenstein Lego men earrings, definitely an icebreaker at any party!

I started making jewellery from vintage Lego parts a long time ago but haven´t showed them here yet, so here they are. Every time I wear them they generate nostalgic memories from people I meet.

Huge dark green Lego diamond ring, -actually a special Lego spare part and with an intricate construction.

Organic Lego leaf structures here used on hairpins.

A more classic variation is this smoke coloured Lego part ear stud. The shelf is from Retro Villa.

Number 4 Coin Earrings

Number 5 Star Stud Earrings

The jewellery is handmade and the earrings are sterling silver. This is how it´s made:

First I warm up the cernit clay with my hands, then I cut out the clay into the shapes I want. Remember to make holes with a needle before you bake them. The clay is baked 30 min. in the oven, afterwards they are given 2 layers of lacquer coating. The clay is glued to the jewellery parts with uhu superglue.

Which is your favourite jewellery? Leave a comment below and you could be the winner ☆

I read the supercute blog by Sara from Minimega. She creates beautiful paper graphics such as postcards, posters etc. and shares her creative ideas on her blog. One of her posts is with jewellery made with cernit clay and I had to try this for myself. I really like these molds I bought on etsy. It is easy to use the cernit clay, my only problem is when I glue the pieces on to the jewellery parts. Especially the earring studs don´t seem to stick. I have tried with reular jewellery glue and with a glue gun. Maybe you can help me?

I solved the glue problem with superglue instead of jewellery glue. The neon flower ring i my favourite. I have more colours in cernit clay and will try some og the others, the bow is gold but looks more cookie coloured…The bright neon colors turn out nicely. After they have baked and are cold, I have given them a glossy lacquer coating.

After many failures I finally learned how to make the origami paper crane and here is the result. I have borrowed books about origami at the library but I still think the best way to learn paperfolding is by video tutorials where you can repeat and watch again. Inspired by blogger Brinja ´s miniature creations and Origami Jewellery I have decided to try to make the cranes in tiny scale for earrings. You can see the result at the end of this post!

I just wanted to show my new jewellery box from NoMess which is perfect for tiny jewellery parts.

The small colored acryllic boxes from NoMess are really cute, and a great idea for a jewellery gift box. And below are some origami lillies I made, click here for instructions.

And this is how the tiny cranes turned out: They will need two varnish glue coatings and they will be ready for earhooks!

And tadaa! Tell me what you think.

I have to show these beautiful almost fairytale-like creations from WAHNSINN of Cph. They are handmade by designer Rikke Hansen and available at Fien Copenhagen in Oehlenschlægersgade. The materials are leather with a lacquer coating on the front side:

Designer of WAHNSINN (wahnsinn means insane in German) Rikke Hansen makes investment items which follow her own inspirations such as art, film and music rather than trends. Her style is simple in mostly white, black  and grey colors. She prefers to work with natural materials and has a new clothing collection and website ready for April.

Rikke is, among other artists, inspired by 70 ´s funk musik,  Antony and the Johnsons and David Lynch. I asked her who she thinks we should know or keep an eye on:

Vilsbøl de Arce & Dennis Lyngsø and of course the shop Fien Copenhagen where you can buy Rikke´s items.
