I'm going to close my shop for a while. I don't know for how long yet; it might be just a few weeks, it might be longer.
Big changes are happening (sorry for the secrecy but I hope I will be able to tell you more in just a little while) and keeping the shop open will be very difficult for the time being.
Anyhow. I would love for the shop to go out with a bang before I'm putting it in "Vacation mode" and I thought a huge sale would be a fun way of doing that.
I'm offering a whopping 30% off every order in my shop
with coupon code SUPER15
and the code will be valid up until wednesday (march 25).
So the only smart thing to do here really, is to hop on over
and snatch your favourites before anyone else does!
Every single piece of jewelry in my shop is unique, and made by me with no other tools than my hands. So once something is sold it's gone forever.
Hope you find something you love, and feel free to spread the word! It would be very helpful and I would be so grateful! /Lotta
It's time for me to release what is This Growing Collection!
I have worked so long and hard on this and I'm so happy to finally be able to show you all!
This Growing Collection is the name of my collection of leaf necklace pendants inspired by nature's very own jewelry pieces.
As the name suggests, this collection is growing; more leaves will join in and every single one of them will be absolutely one of a kind. Like every single leaf ever grown.
Directed, sung and performed by Lotta Losten.
Filmed and edited by David F. Sandberg.
When I started working on This Growing Collection I got the idea of making a little video for the release. A little glimpse into how I see the work that I do.
And also, I've come to realise that all my creative sides mash together and that is how I want it to be. This little video is a combination of many things I love to do.
And you get to hear me sing.
I admit, I'm a bit nervous about that because it's something I've been wanting to do for a long time. Not sing per se, because that I've done all my life (both in shows and in my shower), but put my singing in video form on the internet just for the joy of it. I've never done that before.
I very much hope you like it.
And here are some photos from my photoshoot with the wonderful Ida-Lisa.

You'll find all these leaves, and many more, in my etsy shop
and, as I mentioned earlier, more will come over the weeks.
I'm also open for custom orders if you see a leaf in the right shape but wrong colour, or if you want beads on a leaf that are without them. Just send me a convo on etsy or email me at email@example.com and I'll make the perfect leaf for you.
This Growing Collection is officially RELEASED!
Time for a little shop update. I've been inspired by spring lately, as you can see by the colours of my latest work. It wasn't even intentional, it just happened and my guess is that my extreme longing for vibrant green leaves and bursting flowers were piling up inside me and eventually had to explode through my fingers. Or something.
So this is what happened through that creative explosion.
So this was my take on springtime in jewelry form. Did you like it?
And just because it's spring and I'm feeling all generous and excited for so many things right now I'm offering 15% off your entire purchase with coupon code SPRINGTIME14 in my shop
! The code is valid until may 15. Hop on over right now!
Every single piece of jewelry is made by my hands and completely unique, so make sure nobody else snatches your favourites before you!
A great opportunity to spoil yourself in time for spring parties or give as a gift to someone who enjoys exclusive and one of a kind things. And who doesn't?!
Until next time:Tjingeling!
So finally I can show you the photos from the photoshoot David and I did last week.
I had been working on a very large necklace and was thinking about how I wanted to show it in photos. It needed to be very fancy since the necklace is far from an everyday piece, and I wanted the sharp, intricate shapes of it to really stand out.
As in the photos for my first Tangled Triangle necklaces I wanted to go for the old times movie actress/diva look because I think the clash between that soft, flirty and composed feeling makes a really interesting background to the wild and strong expression of the necklaces.
This time I really wanted to turn myself into one of those old time diva ladies and not be afraid of crossing the line of my own comfort zones.
Let me explain; I feel quite safe infront of the camera most of the time. I have easy to smile and goof around and think it's really fun to be able to showcase my own jewelry from time to time. But here I wanted to go a little bit further and forget about "me" and become a full blown Rita Hayworth-y persona oozing of strength, playfulness and a "I don't care what you think of me" atitude and just own the photoshoot.
We needed two photoshoots to get that because the first day just didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. I was still just me and the composition of the photos wasn't at all what I wanted.
When David and I work together like this it's really a collaboration. He sets the light, I plan out the photos and we talk about how I want the necklaces to be positioned in the frame. Then he takes a few photos, we look through them together and from there we know what works and what doesn't.
It takes a while, but it's so fun, and so rewarding when I later sit down to edit the photos and realise I've been a part of all the aspects from making the jewelry piece, planning the photoshoot, modeling the necklace, taking photos of it and editing it into what you see here now.
A clash between two strong extremes: The old timey movie diva and the sharp and wild necklaces that make The Tangled Triangle series.
All of these are listed in the shop
and you can click the links under the photos to get to each necklace.
The very large, grey necklace is just amazing and took me over 12 hours to finnish and is made of more than 6 metres of wire.
There are no two alike so wearing a Tangled Triangle Necklace is wearing a piece of art around your neck.
