Getting to Know You: Katrine From The Gentle Flower


Hi! I am honoured to be guest posting here today! Thanks for having me, Danielle! :)

My name is Katrine (pronounced Katrina) and I come from Norway. 



I live in Trondheim and I'm 18 years old.

I blog at The Gentle Flower about one of my greatest passions: making jewelry and other crafts.

I've been making things my whole life; whether it's been conjuring up stories, writing poems, making necklaces, crocheting softies or something else. 
It's always been my passion to make things. And I find peace through doing so.
It gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride to make something from scratch.

I love flowers, so they're a recurring theme in my jewelry. 
The nickname, "The Gentle Flower", was given to me by my music teacher when I was young. I was pretty shy and gentle, and she understood that, as she replied to my Mum after a phone call about me wanting to quit the orchestra, "I know and understand; Katrine is a gentle flower." She was one of my favorite teachers.

Approx. one and a half year ago I decided to start my blog. I wanted to share my passion for creating things.
Crafting and creating put a smile on my face, and hopefully my creations could make someone else happy too.

In January, 2011, I started my first online shop on Epla.no. This is the Norwegian equivalent of Etsy.
I blogged in English, so there was a demand for an Etsy store. 

Some of my hopes and dreams for the future are to:
- Publish a book
- Become fluent in Spanish
- Sell my jewelry to a celebrity ;)
- Live in Los Angeles
- Crochet a life-sized house (haha) [read about that here]

I love experimenting with different materials and using different methods, such as polymer clay,

Bearrings

Doughnut Earrings

And other textiles:

Yellow Garden Pinks Necklace



I blog about finding inspiration, my life, outfits +++
