Hello February! We hope you had a great first month of 2016 and that we can brighten up the dark winter months with our little blog series “JUVELAN meets…” Today please welcome the extraordinary, very talented and sweet musical star Annemieke van Dam – one of our models from not only one, but two lookbooks: “Heatwave” and “Endless love”.

Annemieke is fearless and goofy but at the same time a perfectionist in front of the camera and we really love to work with her. Our two photo shoots with her and Conny Wenk were both very different. For “Heatwave”, together with Ana Milva Gomes and Sidonie Smith, it was a cold and grey day in April and the poor girls were freezing like chickens in their short dresses while “Endless love” together with Wietske van Tongeren was taking place at a warm Summer day in August. What will it be like next time?

Are you curious about what Annemieke is up to right now and what favourite JUVELAN jewellery she has? Let’s have a look…

What have you been up to since our photo shoot together with you?
– I’ve had the great opportunity to do two shoots with you! Since the “Endless love” bridal shoot with Wietske van Tongeren in 2013, I’ve been working and living in Vienna together with the love of my life! I’ve had the most amazing luck in the world to play Elisabeth and  after that, to play Mary Poppins!!

What are your strongest memories from the photo shoot we did with you?
– During the photo shoots there was always such a great happy atmosphere! Lots of love going around. We had such great laughs. When Johan came in to the picture once to hang an earring straight, I pretended to bite him! You should hear his shocking scream on the video!!

Do you have a favourite JUVELAN jewellery piece?
– I love the white waterfall earrings “Chantel”!!! And the earrings and bracelet Johan made specially for Wietskes premiere of Rocky!!!! That was a special edition though… Not for sale… (unfortunately haha!)

What are you looking forward to the most right now?
– I have to say that I’ve learned to really live in the moment. I’m very happy now with where I am. Meeting with friends for coffee and walking through Vienna. Enjoying my surroundings and counting all my blessings!

What are you currently up to? / What’s on your life agenda? / Are we able to see you live on stage somewhere?
– Yesterday I played the very last performance of Mary Poppins in Vienna in the Ronacher Theater. It has been such a joy!! We had an amazing cast with my best friends on stage! I’m very curious where life is going to take me after this. And for the first time in my life I’ve recorded a CD that I’m very proud of, it’s called Amateur! Listen to it HERE, I think you’ll like it

Not only is she part of our JUVELAN family as a model, but she has also been part of our sparkly journey in so many other ways, as of assisting us at many different jewellery events and more… Please say hello and welcome to RAPHAELA PEKOVSEK! Having this girl in your surrounding always guarantees a good laugh and we just love working with her in all kind of ways. She is also fearless and she surely would have ripped down the entire hotel room that we had booked for a shoot with her and our favourite photographer Conny Wenk in Vienna, unless we would have stopped her! :-) Raphaela is currently playing MOZART! das Musical in Raimund Theatre as well as being dance captain for the production.

Are you curious about what Raphaela’s strongest JUVELAN memories are and what favourite jewellery she has? Let’s read all about it…

What have you been up to since our photo shoot together with you?
– For the second time in row, I have had the luck to be on stage in a great musical production in my home town Vienna. 

What are your strongest memories from the photo shoot we did with you?
– Lots and lots of good laughs and also the cold but wonderful, sunny day. Oh, and the pedestrian who simply lent us his dog to be part of the shoot as a photo model… that I remember very well too. :-)

raphi_0001

Do you have a favourite JUVELAN jewellery piece?
– The custom made, golden, flower-shaped earrings I have. They’re just so suitable to any occasion.

JUVELAN meets… ANA MILVA GOMES

Heatwave - the black & white issue

Welcome 2016 and welcome back to the blog series JUVELAN meets… We hope you had some lovely holidays and that the new year started well for you. It is time to continue catching up with our lovely JUVELAN models…

Today, please say hello to the gorgeous, extremely funny, caring and loving ANA MILVA GOMES – our model for Heatwave – the black & white collection 2013. The photo shoot together with Annemieke van Dam, Sidonie Smith and Conny Wenk was a long but extremely exciting and enjoyable day. The girls flew in early in the morning from Vienna and back in the evening. The schedule was very tight but we managed to shoot everything we planned and at the same time we had such a lovely time together. Are you curious about what Ana Milva Gomes is up to right now and what favourite JUVELAN jewellery she has? Let’s have a look… Happy New Year 2016!

What have you been up to since our photo shoot together with you?
– Well, I was fortunate enough to stay in Vienna and play Donna in Mamma Mia and more recently I am playing the baroness of Waltstätten in the revival of Mozart das Musical! Plus I got to be a judge on a children’s program called ‘Kiddy Contest’.

What are your strongest memories from the photo shoot we did with you?
– I remember it being such an amazing day with great energy… I will never forget how silly Annemieke van Dam, Sidonie Smith and I were acting when we did a shot where we opened a box filled with the jewellery and had to act surprised. We were so giggly and crazy! 

heatwave_004

Do you have a favourite JUVELAN jewellery piece?
– Owhh gosh… that is a difficult question… I really like all of them. From my custom made purple and gold hoop earrings I wore to a premiere in Stuttgart to the beautiful emerald green, also custom made, earrings I wore to my premiere of Mozart not so long ago.

What are you looking forward to the most right now?
– I’m really looking forward to seeing what is next for JUVELAN… I have a feeling it’s about to blow up anytime. As for myself… I am absolutely happy where I am at the moment and I will go where my destiny will take me.

What are you currently up to? / What’s on your life agenda? / Are we able to see you live on stage somewhere?
– At the moment I’m at the Raimund theatre every night performing in Mozart and I’m working on a few projects that are still in a very early stage. The first thing that will come out soon is a videoblog called ‘INSIDER’, where I interview people who work in the theatre about their job… from technicians… to front of house… to my colleagues on stage… very exciting!

JUVELAN meets… ROBERTA VALENTINI

Skärmavbild 2015-12-20 kl. 16.48.55

Only a few days until Christmas and we can’t wait to have some days off, to eat and drink in overload and to only BE for a little while. It’s so important to find time for yourself and to be able to relax and charge you batteries. The holidays season is the best way to really allow yourself to do this. Don’t you think?

Tonight, please say hello to the wonderful, down-to-earth and quirky ROBERTA VALENTINI – our Christmas model 2014. Our photo shoot with her and Conny Wenk was filled with stomach ache from so much laughter and dirty clothes from basically rolling around among the Pine trees in the forest. Roberta has this ease around her, is brave and would try out anything you’d ask her to do. So with that, we had a very nice and funny photo shoot with her for last year’s Christmas season. Are you curious about what Roberta is up to right now and what favourite JUVELAN jewellery she has? Let’s have a look… Oh, and HAPPY 4TH ADVENT !

What have you been up to since our photo shoot together with you?
– There has been so much going on… but I think the most exciting was to play Elisabeth das Musical in Shanghai. And the nicest happening this year was my sister’s wedding.

What are your strongest memories from the photo shoot we did with you?
– We laughed sooooo much and the funniest thing was, that I kept on sinking down with my heels in the mud… after that I had quite some muscle ache in my calfs. ;-)

robertavalentini_006

Do you have a favourite JUVELAN jewellery piece?
– Yes, and I really have to order it. ;-) I like the “Tinker Bell” necklace and the matching bracelet. Among the bridal jewellery my favourite is the “True Love” bracelet, that piece looked so stunning when my sister wore it for her wedding.

What are you looking forward to the most right now?
– I’m enjoying being back playing the title role in “Elisabeth” and can’t wait to spend time with my family over Christmas.

What are you currently up to? / What’s on your life agenda? / Are we able to see you live on stage somewhere?
– Until recently I enjoyed some time off on my couch at home. But now I’m touring with “Elisabeth” in Frankfurt and from next year on also in Berlin and Hamburg. On top of that I am playing Chess in Chemnitz.

Princess Jasmine wears JUVELAN

When the gorgeous and extremely talented Myrthes Monteiro asked me to design her jewellery for her opening night of the European premiere of the Broadway hit musical Disney’s Aladdin in Hamburg, I was literally over the moon and thought:”OMG, I will be designing jewellery for a real Disney princess.” Myrthes is playing the part of princess Jasmine in the show and is absolutely perfect for the role. So it was a no brainer that I would make her jewellery.

Together we talked about what she was imagining to wear and I loved her ideas from the start. I designed and made her a glamorous pair of chandelier earrings and an oriental headpiece. Everything is made with little crystals, freshwater pearls and sterling silver.

The biggest compliment was when she wrote,that she felt like a princess wearing the jewellery at opening night. Since words aren’t enough to describe this little adventure, I kindly ask you to please enjoy some photos and get carried away on a magic carpet ride…
