Diamonds and Hip Hop//
I met the talented designer Molly Abrahamsen outside her studio here in SoFo.
What do you get inspired by when you make your jewellery?
A lot off African patterns, and i also like to make things with diamonds and patterns in cheap materials over sized, to show the irony in the “bling-bling” side off hip hop. I also think colors are important, specially in Sweden, where the ideal is stripped down.
Which other jewellery designers do you get inspired by?
Melody Ehsani http://melodyehsani.com/
What kind off other things do you make?
I also illustrate paintings and i have sold one to Sophia Somajo and i make costumes for a hip hop band right now. I have also made masks that the hip hop band used during their performance.
Where do you like to shop?
I like to shop second hand, in museum shops and i also like to swap clothes with my friends.
