Story

The story of Julie Nielsen smykker.


I started making jewelry because I love them as objects. I love their permanence, and I am fascinated with the way the wearer can express herself and the symbolism she can put into them.


In the process of learning how to make jewelry, I fell in love with the craft and I have a feeling of getting out of my head and thinking with my hands when I sit at the work bench.


The knit jewelry was created of love for another craft: knitting.

I see stitch markers as more than a tool for marking eg. the start of your round or your raglan increases. They are personal jewelry pieces for your needles and yarn and they contribute to the joy and aesthetics of knitting.


That is why I have refined the little tool into a jewelry piece in precious metal and stones, where the knitter can choose the stone either for its beauty or its spiritual meaning.


In time you can create a selection of knitting jewelry tailored to your preferences, and like other jewelry pieces they can be passed on to the next generation of knitters. 

Custommade jewelry pieces


A piece of jewelry is a beautiful way to celebrate big life events and I love making jewelry for a special person or occasion. This could be engagement, wedding or marking the birth of a child.

On my instagram you can see pictures and a highlighted story of the custommade jewelry pieces I have created during time.

You can always contact me for ideas, prices and delivery time.

Product care


If you take good care of your jewelry they will last a lifetime and even longer.

First of all I recommend that you keep your jewelry protected in the COLLECTOR'S KIT, when they are not in use on the needles.

The silver will oxidize a bit over time. This can be polished with a soft cloth. If you need help to give your jewelry back their shine, please contact me, and we will find a solution.

Sustainability


I prefer to be honest: mining metals is not the most environmentally friendly affair. That is why we have a shared responsibility when it comes to treating jewelry with care and respect.

I take my part of the responsibility by only creating the amount of jewelry that I sell and make sustainable choices around the process and packaging.

You can take yours by only buying pieces, that you absolutely love. Make sure to recycle the packaging when you receive your order, promise to take good care of your jewlery for many years and pass them on to another knitter when the time is right.
