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.

———

I need to breathe fresh air
Hear the wind
Feel the morning mist cover my face
Touch the mountain and the texture as I climb to the sky
The scent of wet forest
The dew on my clothes as I sit down
I need a good swim in the sea, to feel my body cleansed
All these thoughts dissolved
All impressions on my skin fade away
Pure freedom
I’m reborn

I woke up earlier than I thought today.

Just had breakfast.

Now drinking coffee, writing, reflecting over life and these past days…

I’ve felt so agitated and slept weird lately…nightmares mixed with beautiful dreams.

A lot of cleansing going on in my subconscious.

During the daytime I’ve been irritated by so many things, people, places, crowds…

And I’ve been supersensitive to sounds, energies and words…

 

My mom always tells me that when I start to dislike things that I usually love – I need to slow down…I’m getting drained.

She is so right, that is a great sign for me, to retreat and sit back…

That is a beautiful moment to be cherished, before moving on…

Contemplating…

Recharging…

I need some quality-time by myself, with my heART and with my loved one…

 

It’s been a little too much lately.

School, plus a lot of moving around since I was in between apartments, the financial situation was a bit tricky…

I had a skin-reaction to some bites that turned out really nasty…

You know, a lot of things at the same time…

We all have those moments now and then, it’s part of the circle of life…there is night, there is day, there is ebb and flow, seasons change and we grow…

This too shall pass.

 

I am in a major transition in my life right now.

I’m skinless, so therefore I need to take more care.

Prevent myself from harsh environments, people, words, venues etc…

 

Life is life, with all the colors of the rainbow.

I’m gonna sit back for a while and just watch that spectra.

Life is beautiful.

I am so grateful for what have been gems to learn from, what is right before me this very moment and what is waiting around the corner…

 

Become your dream
