Josephine Bergsøe has wanted to be a goldsmith for as long as she can remember. As a child she experimented with shaping metal and melting glass, discovering the magic of the transformative process – and her passion in life.
Right after school she got her first job with the goldsmith Jytte Kløve, and went on to became the apprentice of the renowned Danish jeweller Klaus Kromann:
‘I owe him everything! I had so many dreams about what I wanted to create, but I was no craftswoman. Over four years he hammered a pride in good craftsmanship into me - the foundation of everything I do today.’
‘Ideas are never in short supply. They’re there every single waking minute. But choosing the right ones and shaping them into a satisfying piece of quality craftsmanship, that’s the true art.’
Today Josephine has an exclusive, international clientele of people who value individuality and style – and appreciate a passionate attention to detail.
