www.DDsthlm.com ~ jewels for the soul
I started DDsthlm – Desirée Design stockholm – in May 2014 after graduating from the “Jewelry Making & Design program” at Lorenzo De Medici in Florence, Italy.
The training in ancient and modern techniques, really helped to lay the foundation for my work today. It gave me the courage and insights I needed to develop my own stone-setting techniques and metal finishes that have become the signature for DDsthlm-pieces.
I love to work in gold, silver and brass and the shades they hold from shiny and polished, to raw and hammered and sometimes oxidized. I love how they feel to work with and to wear – the energy they harness and what they stand for spiritually:
GOLD holds the energy of the sun and the color of unconditional love, alchemy & self-realization.
SiLVER brings you courage, removes negative energy, draws in Moon magic as well as connects you with your higher self.
BRASS brings out natural good and inner truth and helps eliminate toxins in the body.
I’ve always been fascinated by jewelry and I still wear a lot of the pieces I got as a kid – I love that jewelry pieces are timeless! The wisdom and meaning of jewelry is magical and it feels amazing to see all that surfacing again, after what feels like it was forgotten amongst the masses for a few hundred years. Back in the days metals, crystals and stones esoteric meanings were highly valued! I LOVE that we now live in a time where more and more people pay attention to these details, the energy we wear, surround ourselves with and emit.
A magical life starts with our inner dreams and our hearts’ desires, then ripples out into all areas of our lives… Sometimes it may start with something as little as you wearing a piece of jewelry that reminds you of your inner truth and the joy of your dreamlife: every time you, see, touch and feel the piece, you are reminded to become your dream & follow your heART…
i love textures.
i love patina.
i love crystals.
to me the imperfect is perfect.
the jewelry pieces are made with fierce focus, authenticity & rawness.
all my pieces harness a special energy of love, passion & life force that I have hammered, soldered, worked & blessed the piece with.
i create what i feel like – sometimes upon request, sometimes to clear my mind, sometimes to understand my truth.
it is what it is.
intuition is my virtue.
