When 15 I worked one day a week in a jewellery workshop called Smykkeverkstaden by Reidun Breistig. I then did one year at high school, needed a break from school and went back to the workshop. Worked there for almost a year to better try out the jewellery field, learned alot. After this I went back to school, did a two year course where I graduated with a diploma as a goldsmith. It was hard to get a job as a goldsmith so the jewellery making ended up being a hobby. But the strong eagerness to create.....learn more.....take my jewellery to a new level.....the desire for new adventures and broaden the horizon was very present. A School in Florence looked interresting...I accepted and suddenly I sat in Florence, Italy. Two amazing years at Alchimia that I would not have missed!
