What begun as a mission in finding the time to just ‘be’, evolved into an urge to capture that perfect moment of freedom in time. Feeling the need to savour and share these raw materials, so often disregarded, I scoured the flint beach for a small number of stones, the ones that felt the most tactile in the palm of my hand. Back at home in my studio these limited number of stones, began to reveal themselves as an honest nod to the timeless. Materials perfectly polished by nature, were freeze-framed in gold, each unique stone honoured in lavish luxury in their natural beauty.
Find your moment of peace whilst these million year old unique stones forged by the earth and set individually by hand, adorn you effortlessly.
Did you know this is one of my favourite collections that I have designed to date? Read more in an interview I did here: ‘Me and My Shop – Meet Saloukee Jewellery‘.
My Lost & Found handcrafted jewellery collection was inspired when I took a vacation to beautiful Nordic country of Denmark. Following a bustling few days in cosmopolitan Copenhagen, I headed West to mid Denmark for a tranquil few days surrounded by farmland and fields. A day trip out to Båring to take in some fresh sea air, revealed itself to be a day of wandering, discovery and beach combing.
HAVE YOUR OWN BEACH FIND, WHY NOT COMMISSION ME?
You might like the above but feel that you have the perfect rock of your own? I love finding creative ways for you to wear and care for your found objects. Perhaps you have a lovely little something you’ve treasure since a child, maybe you’d love to encapsulate a found pebble to remind you of a sentimental holiday or place?
I design unique, handcrafted jewellery pieces with your treasured beach finds so that you wear it, touch it and talk about it. Why keep it hidden away, making it into a piece of tactile jewellery is the perfect way to honour its uniqueness and sentiment.
Like many of us, in the hectic whirlwind of modern life, I often seek ways to find a certain sense of ‘hygge’ in my everyday and my jewellery collections often reveal themselves to be a reflection of this. This intriguing Danish word (pronounced hue-gah) sits at the very core of Saloukee’s being – explained a feeling or mood that comes taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, everyday things more meaningful, beautiful or special. This sense is something I hope I am able to impart on my wearers.
