Of her work and inspiration, Magdalene Teigen Story of Pola Oslo Designs says, my European background and extended travels around the world have created fascinating memories.
The constantly changing surroundings provoke my memories to surface, creating a visual zone between the present and past. This zone becomes an infinite source for my inspiration. I view jewelry as a very intimate object and feel it has a personal connection with the wearer. Through each piece I am telling my personal story. The wearer will expand that story by wearing that object.
All my jewelry is handcrafted by me using sterling silver. Its color reminds me of the Northern European hues during winters. For additional elegance and beauty I often combine the silver with semi-precious stones that are hand selected for their distinctive features and qualities. The designs range from one of a kind to limited editions. They create style that compliments any look from casual and every day to elegant and classic. I believe the power of elegance lies in its simplicity. I feel rewarded when my work touches someone’s soul.
My passion for jewelry emerged from a need to wear attractive adornments reflecting my personality and fashion style. I could not find many. As a lifelong artist I literally took the matter into my own hands and started to make my own jewelry. Today I am proud to offer vivid collections reflecting sophisticated simplicity and desired elegance in a contemporary style.
After receiving her Master in Fine Arts degree from San Francisco Art Institute, the artist spent her early career exhibiting her work in galleries throughout the San Francisco area. With an interest and talent in working with surface and textile designs she is a successful textile designer working for some of the most prestigious companies in the US.
