DND - Jewelry Studio
"The jeweller allows me to wear the sapphire blue lake on my finger, the emerald green leaves around my neck, and take the citrine sunset with me wherever I go. Jewelry has become my daytime link to nature in an office with no windows. And if I have to work late, there’s nothing like diamond stars and a pearl full moon against an onyx night sky."
- Astrid Alauda.
I like to make jewelry that makes people dream. I create fantastical, beautiful jewelry inspired by anything and everything from fairy tales to underwater creatures, from calligraphy and sculpture, to hard sciences and science fiction. The ideas come flowing whenever I see a beautiful gem, be it for it’s cut, colour or sparkle, not it’s price. I believe that expensive is a mask for lack of style and traditional is an excuse for unoriginality. All women deserve luxury and magic. I love dressing women, and the way a necklace lies against her skin, tracing the collarbones, the nape of the neck... The way a pair of earrings commands attention to her face... Or simply the way she sparkles. I love the way jewelry has the power to makes a woman feel beautiful, elegant, sensual, but most of all, make her dream.
