When it was first introduced, the beads’ stories were created ‘on-the-spot’ as we chatted to customers in the jewelry store. The stories were never recorded, as each customer essentially created their own story for the bead.

Designer Svend Nielsen

"I started in an apprenticeship with eight others from 1932 to 1937. Charms for bracelets was something totally new…they came from the newspapers to write about it! We made small buckets rakes and spades to hang from the bracelet - in gold.
Whatever we made had to be sold!!! They didn't want us to be too artistic! But it was okay to create "something different", "something new". That was sort of okay.
