PINKO JEWELLERY was born out of sheer personal necessity to turn an everyday object into a piece of jewellery.
PINKO comes from Finnish words “pinni” and “koru”, meaning “hair grip” and “jewellery”. Finland hosts the World Design Capital 2012 – Helsinki. I happen to love Helsinki… and design.. and hair grips.

What got you started crafting?
Crafting is in my genes, so there was never any point of fighting it. It's a way of life, whether you do it for fun or for living. Once it's in you, it'll never leave.
What is your source of inspiration?
Museums, magazines, art, nature, other peoples' handiwork, the list is endless...
What have you made recently?
I've recently played with new designs for the PINKO JEWELLERY collection. Different shapes and colour combinations are coming out soon.
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
PINKO JEWELLERY is sold in museums shops and handicraft boutiques across Finland. You can also order designs via email and hopefully there will be an online shop out soon.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Because handmade is always made with love. It is personal. It is unique.
