Two weeks ago I did hair and makeup for the awsome jewellery brand Skjerven Jewellery, just for fun. I’ve been used to shoots being part of my job week for the last decade, but these day I’m mostly comfortably seated in front of a computer, and I miss working with my hands. Painting on people. Watching their faces telling me how to make them up, invent them more beautiful, enigmatic, sensual, expressional or sinister, and enhance the particular beauty of each feature. So when Hege from Skjerven contacted me the week before I couldn’t help myself, even though I’m really too busy being a full time interior journalist and full time mum and all.
Per loooves the wind-in-the-hair-trick and really knows how to make models get their groove on. It was really fun working with Per again. We did lots of shoots together in the past, he was even the one who recommended me for my first ‘real’ job, for which I am forever grateful. In this business it used to be all about connections, you could go a long way by having the right drinking buddies (which I never had, btw (I mean the right ones. No lack of drinking buddies, but was never clever enough to choose the right ones)). These days it’s more about your number of followers, I guess…
The pieces of Skjerven Jewellery is handmade and includes the iconic pattern Lotus, an designed by the Norwegian artist Arne Clausen in the early 60`s. You might have seen it on bowls like this:
And now you can get it on jewellery too! Here’s my favourite pieces:
