About

I am a 33 year old metalsmith residing in Copenhagen, Denmark. I grew up in a creative home, both parents being architects and my mom always sewing, knitting and painting. So in a way the creative path was very much laid out for me. My grandmother was also a metalsmith and she and my grandfather had a goldmine in Oregon (Yes, I'm half american). Jewellery and gemstones has always been a great passion for me, and creating things has always been a natural pursuit for me. I studied fashion design in Copenhagen in my early twenties, but after working in this area a few years, I could no longer withhold my passion for making jewellery. After my first metalsmithing course I was hooked! I went on to take a half year fulltime course in metalsmithing and worked for a few metalsmiths in Copenhagen.

About a year after I opened my studio and shop in Copenhagen. The learning never stops and I have since taken several professional courses in metalsmithing, stonesetting etc. I am always learning and on the look for new ways of expressing my creative passion.

Making jewellery comes very natural for me. It's a process that has virtually no limitations, which makes it tremendously exiting. Also it requires a special kind of concentration - one that takes me to a consciousness of peace and beauty, where the world cease to exist for a while. Therefore my jewellery is just as much a gift to me, as it is to you.

My inspiration literally comes from all over the place. I am constantly in a creative state of collecting ideas everywhere I go. Ideas which I take home and work to perfect and match the style I prefer to express. As I have always enjoyed the exiting world of fairytales and history, I love to create jewellery that gives the wearer a feeling that it's not of this world, but perhaps a magic kingdom in the ancient past.

I put a lot of love and energy into each piece of jewellery I make, and it is my wish that everyone will feel this unique energy when then wear it.

With love - Signe Njust
