I can’t believe how fast this fall passed by!!! This close to the end of the year, I can’t help but reflecting over the past four months: I moved to Florence, Italy, in late August, to fulfil one of my childhood dreams, to study jewelry design and learn Italian! At Lorenzo De Medici I’m finally doing the 1-year certificate program in Jewlery Design/Making.

I’ve always made jewelry, even during the busy years working as a dancer/actress/singer/TV-host, I sold some of my creations in the store “Tjalla Malla” on Södermalm in Stockholm. Doing it “on the side” has been something I’ve always wanted to change, to take it to the next level and create my own brand. The dream has been to one day master soldering, different metals, setting stones, refining my drawing techniques etc. so I could create the DD-pieces I had in my imagination. Up til now, it has only been a matter of finding the time to do that… I believe that,  just like any artform, TIME is important, in order to find the personality in artistic work, as well as mastering the SKILLS needed! I believe that those two ingredients are crucial, to be as free of an artist as possible – just like Maxwell sings in one of his songs: “In order to be it, you gotta be in it”. I’m so happy I finally took the time to do this…

This first part of my 1 year in Florence, has been amazing! Everything from History of Jewelry, to Gemology and Rendering techniques, have filled my days! It’s been fun going back to school – I only wish I would have more time for homework and more time in the studio LOL – never thought I’d say that about homework!!!. It feels amazing to add the art of Jewelry Making, to my artistic palette. I now truly see why Jewelry Making has been so important for me – it is one of the art  forms I practice, that live on forever, something I can touch and see til the end of time… Over the years I’ve come to understand that each artform/expression is fulfilling different pieces of my soul. It’s one thing to be on stage in the theatre or on stage singing, another thing to do live TV, something else to choreograph or write songs, yet another thing to create interior design and make jewelry…they all stem from the same passion, the passion of creating and letting the life force live freely…the result though, gives different experiences and satisfactions within…

Below are a couple of my DD creations. You can find more on my instagram @desireerosborg or in our LUNA COLLECTIVE WEBSHOP.

When I got back to Sweden in August last year, I met up with one of my best friends Cherie Cherokee. We’ve known each other for a decade, sharing dreams and the love for limitless creativity. As we regathered our forces, we decided to once and for all create a platform, where we could share and express our passions in life – Luna Collective was born.

There are endless creations and designs that fill our every-day-lives with magic and joy. In an over-consuming world, the art of re-creating, becomes more and more important. Fashionable trends come and go. We, as human beings, change as well and prefer to accentuate our selves differently from time to time. Luna collective is all about using what we have, or what we have been given. To the fullest extent possible, we make new creations out of old material. Sometimes we refine, other times we remake a design with a new twist, or totally redesign the material into something new. Imagination is key, as well as the passion for creating limitless. Feel free to drop us any inquieries about remakes or redesigns. We love new challenges!

YOUR TRASH IS OUR TREASURE.

BecomeYourDream-Catcher

Ever since I was a kid I’ve been collecting stones, branches, seashells, sticks and cones… The comfort it brings to have a little piece of nature in my room, pocket, around my neck, or on my finger, is fascinating and magical. The way nature erodes, molds, shapes and colors with sand, wind and water, creates amazing energy. That movement of change, that life force, that journey is tangible and unique in each piece. I love that raw pureness!!

The last couple of months I’ve come across some beautiful things along the beaches of Byron Bay and at the Crystal Catle. Some amazing driftwood have become new creations for my room, as well as my own version of chimes/dreamcatcher…there’s more to come…

I always find it interesting to observe the whole process of what a creation looks like in my head, versus the complete piece of art. I’ve had the “BecomeYourDream-Catcher” in my head and been feeling it for the last 2 months…slowly bulding it up as I’ve come across each piece. I’m stoked to finally present my:
