Travelling in Asia in the early 2000s completely changed the life of Julie Sandlau, a young Danish law student. On her travels, Julie was introduced to the sparkling world of jewellery-making, and she fell in love with the process of transforming rough gems and bits of material into beautiful, crisp, exquisite jewellery. Twelve years ago she set up her own jewellery design business, which today employs over 500 people – and has seen everyone from Oprah Winfrey and Destiny’s Child to J.K Rowling wear her pieces.
