She is instrumental in defining the style of the products offered. She considers her work as both classic and modern.

Today, they share some insights on jewelry-making, specifically Pandora charms. Lisbeth shares her sentiments on Pandora jewelry design.

What do you think good design is?
Good design is something that arouses your curiosity, and something you might even fall head over heals for. We have a proud tradition for design in Denmark, and I find that even though I might not want a particular piece of designer furniture in my own living room, I can still feel excited about, and get that “wow effect”, from good design!

Where do you find your inspiration?
At the moment, I am very inspired by the organic shapes found in nature, and it is often the tiny detail and more abstract shapes that catch my imagination. But often it is also the process itself that inspires me. I tend to bring out the shape in the material on the basis of small rough sketches, and a shape can actually change a good deal while I’m working with it.

What is your favorite piece of jewellery?
I once made a very special gold ring with diamonds, and I’ve worn it now for the last seven years. I’m pretty loyal to my jewellery and don’t change it very often, but PANDORA’s new earrings, Mix & Match, which you can combine as you like, have taught me to experiment a bit more. They give me the freedom to be practical during the day and fancy in the evening.

Below are Lone’s answers to three questions about good design, sources of inspiration and her own taste in jewellery.

What do you think good design is?
Quality and good craftsmanship are some of the most important aspects to me! But if I had to highlight one special aesthetic that I love and that has influenced a lot of good design, it would have to be Scandinavian simplicity – from its realization in classic Danish furniture craftsmanship, to the dominating look in contemporary fashion.

Where do you find your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from anywhere, from a walk in the city, to international fashion fairs, where I search more actively and attempt to create jewellery that is in tune with the times. I am often inspired by objects with a shape or pattern that I just find fascinating – like a wallpaper pattern or the shape of a vase – which I can “translate” into jewellery.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
I love my gold ring with a beautiful rhodolite, because I really think it suits me. But I am most proud of a series of earrings that you can combine yourself. I love the idea that each woman can use her own creativity to create exactly the pair she feels best suits her personality!
