STEVE MORSE JEWELRY
I started making silver jewellery because I got inspired by a Deep Purple song, composed and played by guitarist Steve Morse. The first piece I made was a silver dreamcatcher with the inscription ”The Aviator”, the name of that song. It was followed by other pieces inspired by Native American style and it felt natural to add strings played in concert by a favorite rock star. I was honored and moved to get the rights to sell jewelry with Steve’s played strings. Steve even came up with the idea of a design, the Cutout Heart Pick Necklace We have sold quite many pieces all over the world, and am proud to say we have happy customers.
URIAH HEEP JEWELRY
Uriah Heep is one of those bands that has been with me since I was a teenager. Songs like ”Easy Living” and ”The Wizard” are epic to me. But it wasn’t until recent I saw them live, and I was taken by how very mighty they still are! And I got the opportunity of meeting the guys too, so making musical silver jewelry for them, came naturally. I’m just very proud and happy to do it!
CARL SENTANCE JEWELRY
Since I have a great love for Deep Purple, I went to several gigs by Purple’s keyboardist Don Airey. Carl Sentance is the singer in Don’s band, and his vocals and stage presence impressed me very much. At some point I was lucky to meet him and I noticed his tattooed symbol. I was curious about it and liked it a lot, so I asked if he wanted one made in silver. He did, so I made him a necklace, a bracelet and a ring. Later, I asked him if he would like a collection for his fans and he said yes, which made my rocker heart warm.
FLYING COLORS JEWELRY
Since Flying Colors is one of the bands Steve works with, and I like their music very much, it came natural to do their jewelry too. My partner in crime here is Bill, who’s Steve’s executive producer, and the manager of Flying Colors. Many of the designs we worked on together. And more news here will come…
By the release of Nazareth album ”Razamanaz” in 1973, I was a young teenager, and that was when I really became a hard rock fan. Nazareth quickly became one of my favorite bands ever. In 2015, Carl Sentance took his place as singer of the band, and made it sound perfect. Their new album ”Tattooed on my Brain” really rocks! I saw them live and I was lucky to meet Carl, and later the band gave me consent to sell jewelry for them, which made my day!
MIKE PORTNOY JEWELRY
Mike is the drummer of Flying Colors…So he gave his consent to try out drumstick jewelry merch. Only one design here sofar, but hopefully there will be more.
VEGETATE [ˈvɛdʒɪteɪt] verb
1. live or spend a period of time in a dull, inactive, unchallenging way
2. (of a plant or seed) grow; sprout
Simply Vegetating is an eco-friendly and ethical limited production design collection with a plant-based message, developed, and designed by my daughter Carolina and handmade by me (Katya).
The concept for the collection is a save-the-world, plant-based one, with a sprinkle of bad vegetable puns.
The items in the collection are made for you to use and treasure, to be inspired by, and to show off your values (and your sense of style of course). It is our hope they will be a precious part of your life for a long time to come.
This is not really a collection, but more a ”gathering” of a few designs that people liked, and that I liked myself. I’m not very good at ”aiming” my efforts at a certain goal, I’m a bit shattered, so these designs are just a few of the designs I made that I thought could be customized for you – or you – or YOU…And you can contribute to the ”collection” by asking for your own ideas to be made!
