Marlene Juhl Jørgensen: "I have to take responsibility and help impact the world in a positive way. You have to start with yourself."
You’ve been in the industry 30 years now, how did you end up a jewellery designer?
It’s quite early that I realise what I want to do in life. My mom has always had an interest in jewellery and would always have it custom-made. I remember how she once gifted us children a razor blade in silver and had one made in gold for herself. She was very modern and ahead of her time. It formed my interest in jewellery. I discovered designers like Gerda Lynggaard, Guld & Gummi, Birthe Steenbach and Torben Hardenberg who did untraditional jewellery. It took on a different life and became something more than pearls and eternity rings. It was a different approach and it opened my eyes to how you could work with unconventional materials like amber and rubber. It was an inspiration in the way that I started thinking about ways that I could redefine this universe and decide what it was supposed to look like.
FM: With whom did you do your apprenticeship?
With Vagn Drachmann. It was an amazing place. It was great, not in a cool way, but in a tough way. It really was incredible. Then, when I finished, I went to New York to study at Parsons. But I felt like I knew everything they had to offer already; they didn’t have a Master’s in jewellery. Instead, I started a Master’s in Fine Arts. I had always known that I had to travel and try new things. Had I just started on my own immediately after my apprenticeship, I am not sure I would have found my own style.
