Harmikseni mukana ollut kameran linssi ei ollut paras kuvaamaan yksityiskohtia, mutta kotona sitten kuvaan lempparini siihen sopivalla makrolinssillä :)
Erityisesti ihastuin näihin käsikoruihin, jotka olivat osittain nahkaa, osittain metallia.
Itse en ole allerginen juuri millekään paitsi nikkelille. Siitä syystä itselleni onkin hienoa, että kaikki Snö of Swedenin tuotteet ovat nikkelittömiä. Minua myös keihtoo tässä ruotsalaisessa perheyrityksessä se, että valtaosa koruista muistuttavat ainakin minua skandinavian kauneudesta. Koruissa käytetään paljon makeanveden helmiä, kristalleja sekä hopeaa, jotka tuovat mieleeni Lapin kauneuden talvella.
Pian lupaan esitellä omat lempparini kokoelmista.
Miten teidän muiden laitanne?
Luin, että SNÖ of Sweden olisi Suomen suosituimpia korumerkkejä. Löytyykö sinun korulipastostasi SNÖn puhtaan kauniita koruja?
I absolutely adore the Swedish jewellery brand SNÖ of Sweden. That's why I was thrilled when I got the invitation to come and select my favourite pieces of their new and previous seasons' collections. To you all who are unfamiliar with this gorgeous Scandinavian design here are some facts from the company's website:
SNÖ of Sweden is a family owned and run business, which was first established in 2002.
Nearly all of their products consist of freshwater pearls and semi-precious stones and all are nickel tested.
Mrs. Lena Jonsson Näslund founded the company, starting with nothing but a vision of making affordable, but unique, products that could be worn by women of all ages and backgrounds, using materials provided by nature. Her very first design was a necklace strung with tiny freshwater pearls in bright spring colours, which was made as a small gift to her best friend, and which is now worn by women all over Northern Europe. The tiny pearl series was followed by crystal earrings and pearl rings, which have since then developed into more than 5000 designs, forming the SNÖ of Sweden collection today.
What's the real source of inspiration when it comes to creating jewellery loved by so many women all over the world? Having grown up, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of northern Sweden, Lena herself says that being part of nature, the people around her and life itself are her main source of inspiration. Being the creative director of a business that has continued to grow means taking on the challenge of combining simple, pure and timeless materials created by Mother Earth and turning them into wearable designs. The name Snö is the Swedish word for snow and celebrates the pure, white and crystal clear materials of the north.
This is why I love SNÖ of Sweden: As a Finnish girl living abroad, I love their pure and elegant design that reminds me of my dear home country. It brings back memories from my childhood, when we used to go on skiing holidays with my family in the beautiful scenery of Lapland. White and sparkilng snow and if you got lucky, the amazing display of Northern lights in the sky. Yes, Lapland is worth visiting.. ;)
Soon I will show you guys the items which were my favourites from the collection... ;)
