Champagne cork earrings for more fun in life!

Helsinki based freelance journalist and aspiring author who makes earrings in her so called free time.

I bought a pair of cork earrings a few years ago at an art & crafts market in Helsinki, Finland. At some point I lost one of the earrings and tried to find similar ones, without any success.

In the fall 2014 I finally made a pair for myself and posted a photo of them on Instagram. I got so many likes and nice comments, so I thought I might as well start making some more – there might be more people out there who would like champagne earrings.

I’ve always been a creative person and love working with my hands – when I do I forget about everything else, and just concentrate on creating something beautiful. I also love the idea of making jewelry out of trash.

My main job as a freelance writer also requires creativity, as well as writing novels.

For half my life my friends have been calling me Kugge, which leads to the Swedish word kugghjul – pinion (or cogwheel) – and in this case Pinions. The name also symbolizes all the wheels constantly turning in my head, trying to come up with new ideas.
