Hi Helle, Thank you for talking to us today! Please tell us a little bit about yourself?
I started Anni Lu in 2013 with the vision in mind of being the most fun and playful jewellery brand in the world.
What inspired you to start Anni Lu and where does your design inspiration come from?
The idea for Anni Lu came to me as I really wanted to find jewellery that I could wear every day, that suited my own personal style, which is very colourful and fun.
Most of my inspirations have come from travelling to amazing places around the world. Bali, especially has a very special place in my heart. I really love their culture, the nature there, and their beautiful crafts and artwork.
Where are you based now?
I’m living just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark which I love because I’m close to nature and the sea. It’s also next door to Louisana, super cool and there is the art museum which I often visit.
