B as in Balloons. Björk and Big Boy


It’s time to take another step in my “I Spy- alphabet game”. Today I’ll be focusing on stuff beginning with the letter B.
I took a tour in my studio and saw so many B-things, bbbbut these 3 made the cut.

Here goes “I spy with my little eye something starting with the letter B…”


B as in Björk.
I was a teenager in the 90’s. MTV was constantly playing in the background. To me Björk is the essence of 90’s music and this album “debut” (1993) had so many hits, pretty much all of the tracks. “Human Behaviour“, “Venus as a boy“. “Big time sensuality” to name a few. And the videos are so great.

Another classic toy from the US that I hold dear. Just like Raggedy Anne ,from last time,  you can find this figure (it’s actually a piggybank) in every antique shop in the american midwest. He is the poster boy for the hamburger place “Big Boy”. From 1936.



B as in Balloons.
Helium Mickey and Minnie in our studio. We bought them on our wedding day at Tivoli gardens. See that post here!

That´s this week´s letter.
I´ll be back with C next time. Hmmm what can it be? Cotton candy? Candy Crush? Candice Bergen?
Come back and find out.


I´ve decided to join this ABC challange that my Australian blogger colleague Pip at Meet Me At Mikes started. An alphabetical “I Spy… game” A new letter each week to inspire a new blog post.
Naturally we´re starting with the letter A, then a new letter each week. I agree with Pip: blogging used to be more about things like this a few years back. Sending out challanges for other bloggers to accept. Remember our Family Picture challenge? I miss it.

I spy A

Dos Visits silversmith Beata Svensson

Beata says "this is where the magic happens"

Silversmith Beata Svensson started “Atom 47” 3 years ago.
Today she works full time making and sending silver jewlery to customers in Scandinavia. Having your own biz means your always in the need for new photos. For press, print and all those fun social media outlets. Since a few years back these type of assignemts are a big part of my work. Many brands just send over product and moodboards and let me “do my own thing” with them. This is very handy since most of my clients are outside of Sweden. But in some occassions I get to go visit them. Like yesterday at Beata’s studio in Malmö, Sweden.
“I need a lot of pictures of random things in my workshop, my tools, the atmosphare, my desk, where I craft and so on”

I took so many pictures that I love so I decided to put together this visit.
So here’s a peek inside Atom 47’s studio, seen through my lens. Please click the images for larger versions and captions.

Photographing silver in Malmö


Just got back from photographing in Malmö and , just like yesterday,  I was offered some great seating where I could check my instagram. Yay!
I’ve been shooting jewelry on fingers, arms and around necks at the studio of Beata Svensson, the designer of Atom47.
Beata did our rings (that I LOVE) for the wedding and today I both photographed and modelled for her. She only wanted my hair, I know =)

In my line of work I come across so many talented and creative women who run their own buisness. Starting your own biz is no walk in the park and these fierce women work hard at pursuing their goals for how they wanna live and work. Like Jennifer of the store Bag all. Mirijam from the tattoo removal studio A Bushel & a Peck. Helena and Liselotte from flower and decor shop Skumpa & Spalje (from yesterday) and today, silversmith Beata Svensson from Atom47, to name a few. They” keep on keeping on” and are truly inspiring.

Anyway… yesterday when I was at the flower shop I had to buy some flowers to bring home and today I was just as bad. I just had to have the necklace above.


I stole this pic of me next to Farha from Beata’s instagram @atom_478b7b4352

Here are my wedding rings btw.
It’s the”My kind of Dimond ring” (black), Raw Rock (Black), and one wedding band with dots on it.
