My Sister The Jewellery Maker





My sister Elisabeth has jumped into the unknown and sets out to be a full time jewellery maker in Denmark where she lives.

She uses old norwegian techniques, like sami braiding. I don't know anyone else who braids in silver. Do you? She knits and crochets in silver and gold too, using pearls and stones as well. It's not just design: Every single piece is unique and handmade with love.

To celebrate her dream come true, the Arctic sisters cooperate on a giveaway until the 15th of January: One random of you can win a piece, by leaving a comment telling me which collection you like the best from her website: Nina, Alise, Lilli or Susanne.

I know you appreciate good crafts! (PS: if you're in Copenhagen, visit store Unika and you may find her there, she looks like me).She's also on
Facebook


Good luck!

Good luck to your sister always exciting to start a new venture.
For me my favourites are the silver Nina collection, they look like a giant puzzle that needs to be untangled. Never seen something like the before. Tx

Margaret said...

I like all of them but the Alise collection is my favorite. Good luck to her on her new venture!

Nancy Letts said...

Good luck to her, how exciting to venture out with her own designs... they are all beautiful and unique. Have not seen anything like this before. My favorite is the Lilli, I think because it looks crocheted.

This is my first comment here, but I have been reading awhile and wanted to say, yours is one of my favorite blogs.

I like the Susanne. I have never hear of anyone crocheting with metal, very cool:) best wishes!

Nancy said...

Your sister is very talented, and it is difficult to select a favorite. Nina reminds me of my favorite hobby: knitting.

Anu and Lisbeth said...

Oh dear, they are all just marvellous. But Lilli is my favourite one, they look like snowflakes or cobweb. Absolutely divine.

All of the collections is playful and beautiful, but I like the Alise Collection the best. It reminds me about the nature and fairytales.

Alle kolleksjonene er superfine! Vanskelig å bestemme seg for en favoritt, men jeg tror det blir susanne:-)

Good luck to your sister with her business! They are all wonderful, but I like the most the Lilli collection! Beautiful and unique pieces! Congrats!

Kaylovesvintage said...

this is nice, if I go to Copenhagen this summer tell your sister I want to meet her for coffee..
Lilli would be very much my cup of tea

The best of luck to your sister. Those are really original designs! My favourite collection is Susanne - are those *knitted*? Especially the cuffs with wee stones.

Sally Tharpe Rowles said...

Good Luck to your sister, these are beautiful pieces!

Teresa said...

Happy New Year my dear & good luck to your sister! All of the collections are beautiful but I think that Lilli has to be my favourite. The pieces remind me of intricate stained glass windows - like the rose windows of the notre dame cathedral in paris. Exquisite!

Your sisters work is lovely! Eac piece is gorgeous, but I like the Nina collection the most.

marian said...

everything your sister makes is so beautiful! good luck to her!
i love alise the best, maybe because i am very partial to sami bracelets.

ibb said...

Good luck for your sister!
And lovely collections. I like most Susane!
I have seen something similar here, quite similar silver crocheting technics, cannot say who was the artist...
Anyway, good luck!!!

Wendy said...

Beautiful jewelry. I love Susane = probably because I knit a bit and can't imagine knitting in metal.

Kenneth said...

Heey Mali, long time no see!
Koselig å lese og hyggelig å se arktiske mammaer og andre på Tromsø-tundraen:)
Fin dag til deg!

Good luck to your sister!
I like Kollektion Alise the best, but they are all beautiful!

Hilde Gaard said...

Good luck to your sister! I bought a bracelet from the Alise collection at the market in Tromsø in November. So I guess Alise is my favourite, but they are all beautiful.

I like Lilli the most, I think. But they are all beautiful! Hard to choose..

i wish you sister every success. her stuff is lovely and deciding which one is favorite was a difficult choice, but in the end i think it was the susanne - they were amazing and what wonderful workmanship. dee

Lady B and Little H said...

Wow, really lovely designs. Your sister has great talent and it is super to hear about someone doing what they truly love and making a business out of it. I will send a link to my husband as a hint of what I would love to get as a birthday present. It has to be an Alise bracelet. Lovely, simple but complicated. Just like me?

Stephanie said...

How could I possibly pick? Can it be a tie between Alie and Nina? That will have to do. :)

Mr T said...

I will go for Lilli:)

Siena said...

Exciting, I hope the business goes well. I like the Nina collection, in silver. I can see where she has som of the name inspiration from :)

DeedainSeattle said...

I think the jewelry looks amazing, but my favorite is the Alise collection...it looks ancient in a good way--like no other jewelry. Good luck to your sister!

Kali said...

Elisabeth is a wonderful jewelry designer! Congrats to her on her new venture! If I had to chose I would say Nina is my favorite collection :)

inner west mum said...

Hey, cool jewellery by your sis! Good luck to her! I LURVE the silver Nina Collection (fingers crossed in Australia!).

walkingthecat said...

Oooh, this is difficult. I would be tempted to vote for my namesake but I think the crown will have to go to Alise, with Nina the runner-up....

Congratulations to your sister! Her jewellery collection is very unique and creative, especially the way she crochets the silver. Although all of her collections are brilliant, my favorite is Nina.

Retrobaby said...

Talentfull søster!! Vanskelig å velge, men jeg tror Nina er min favoritt.

Det er svært at vælge mellem de fire. De er alle super fine, men de knudrede øreringe i Nina kollektionen er bare SÅ fine!

Tracy said...
