Interview // Lene Hald

Common to Lene's jewelry is a playful, colorfull and beautiful universe, with a happy and subtle humor in the way of design. Her creations often have an element of surprise, such as opportunities for multiple uses, multiple functions, or atypical material choices.

Tried and true methods against creative block? 

I have to sit down and get started. It may be that everything seems big and incomprehensible, but if I start a small place, with a tiny corner of the tasks, then it will probably go perfect with time.

What are some inspiration things: designs, artists, music, sites that you find yourself re-visiting often?

life, people and nature. I visit museums and art galleries, but in fact it is with meeting people and in nature I get the most inspiration.
