Welcome to our series of “JUVELAN meets…” where we catch up with all our models in the past 5 years. Tonight we are saying hi to VALERIE LINK ! Valerie has almost been with us since the very beginning and has also been returning as one of our most beloved models many times. Not only is she on the cover on three (!) lookbooks, but she has also been providing our online shop with here extremely beautiful jewellery bags throughout the years and she is regularly wearing our jewellery on red carpet events. When we got to Valerie 4 years ago, we just fell in love with her straight away. She is a wonderful talented musical performer, mother-in-law dream, best wife a man can have and now also a mother-to-be. Thanks to our favourite team member, photographer Conny Wenk, we have SO many photos of Valerie in our archive and it was not easy to make a little selection for tonight’s article. For more Valerie love, please give in her name in the search field of our blog and to see even more, head over to Conny Wenk’s blog and do the same there. But now, let’s find out what has happened in Valerie’s life since our last photo shoot together and what favourite JUVELAN piece she is having. Enjoy and have a lovely Sunday evening!
What have you been up to since our photo shoot together with you?
Oh, quite a lot actually! I got to know the man of my life, we got married and next year our baby comes into the world. Career wise, I moved to Hamburg after “Rebecca” (that’s where I got to know JUVELAN), and played Christine Daaé in “The Phantom of the Opera” at Neue Flora Theatre for 2 years. Of course, there are many other things that have happened, but all of that wouldn’t fit in here! :-)
What are your strongest memories from the latest photo shoot we did with you?
Well, my very first photo shoot with Conny Wenk was supposed to be only a portrait shoot for myself! Then you guys suggested to do a little “test photo shoot” with me since you were exploring locations for where to shoot your next upcoming collection. This little try-out turned into my first (but not the last!), very own JUVELAN Lookbook… Except of that, I can only say that we always have great fun together, time always flies by and the result is always wonderful photos. I am already now looking forward to the next photo shoot with you! (to give a broad hint ;-))
Do you have a favourite JUVELAN jewellery piece?
The necklace “Galadriel” is simply wuuuuunderschööööööön! And I must say, that I actually didn’t wear any earrings until I got some of yours. ;-)
What are you looking forward to the most right now?
Just to be at home and to have lots of time together with my man.
What are you currently up to? / What’s on your life agenda? / Are we able to see you live on stage somewhere?
No, I’m not on stage at the moment. I played my last show as Christine Daaé in “The Phantom of the Opera” on September 30th. At the moment I am enjoying my little baby break. ☺️
