I was born in 1953`s in a Sea Sami family in Børselv, in the municipality of Porsanger, Norway. Now I live in the Soppero, in Sweden, where I have my workshop and my family. I`ve had my own business since 1980
Crafts have always been in my heart since childhood.
which were to become knives, handcraft and limestones. This is what affected my whole life, and what I'm working on now. In 1980 my husband Thomas and I built a workshop so that we could work with just crafts, which we had imagined and chosen as a profession. We both also started a company, which is still active today. I have been given many big assignments these years, which have been of big interest and fun as well as challenging. These are decorations and official assignments both in Sápmi and internationally. “The world's largest silver komsekule” (amulet for good luck) is my work that was fully handmade, from the piece of iron until it was completely finished. One can find it in Tromsø Museum in Northern Norway. Another "silver komsekule" in a smaller version is exhibited in the Riddu Duottar Museum in Karasjok. The latter has been made in the same way as the larger komsekule. A very spesial work, when one komsekule contains lots of history!
One of my major assignments as a sami silversmith is a special order for silver jewelry, brooch and a hairpin for HRH Crown Princess Victoria.
