My European background and extended travels around the world 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. It has personal connection with the wearer. Through each piece I am telling my personal story. The wearer will expand that story by wearing that object.
My jewelry is handcrafted. I choose to work with sterling silver. Its color reminds me of the Northern European hues during winters. I am choosing my semi-precious stones for their distinctive look and qualities.
I believe the power of elegance lies in its simplicity.
I feel rewarded when my work touches someone’s soul.
Hello and thanks for visiting my webpage.
My name is Magdalene Teigen Story, owner and jewelry artist at Pola Oslo Design, LLC.
After receiving my Master in Fine Arts degree from San Francisco Art Institute, I spent my early career exhibiting my work in galleries throughout the San Francisco area.
I also discovered an interest and talent in working with surface and textiles designs and now for many years I have been a successful textile designer working for some of the most prestigious companies in the US.
My passion for jewelry emerged from a need of wearing attractive adornments reflecting my personality and my fashion style. I could not find many. As a lifelong artist I took literary matter to my own hands and started to make my own jewelry. Metalsmithing come naturally to me having already extended experience in many art disciplines. My jewelry pieces received a lot of positive attention and in 2013 I decided to create Pola Oslo Design, LLC.
Today I am proud to offer vivid collections reflecting sophisticated simplicity and desire elegance in contemporary style. My jewelry is handcrafted by me using sterling silver. For additional elegance and beauty I often combine 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 hope you enjoy visiting my store.
