What's going on in our Hidden Boutique
The Carnival in Venice is famous for its big masquerades, where everyone is hiding behind a mask. Sometimes life itself can feel like a masquerade, where we are hiding our true selves. We believe life is most beautiful when we see the true wonder behind the masks and loves us exactly for who we are. To us, that is the secret beauty of the rough diamonds, who are brave enough to show their beauty to the world without any cutting and polishing. That is the secret beauty of being and loving life as it is.
Our School Project
A glimpse from our trip to Africa in March 2018 and our school project in the remote village Chisanza.
Love Never Fails
A little over a year ago my 13-year-old daughter along with her friend, started her own project, Pillows For Africa, where half the profit of every handcrafted pillow sold goes directly to a health clinic in rural Zambia. Rebekka inspires me every day. That is why we decided to work with a local school next to the health clinic in Chisanza, North Eastern Zambia. A remote area with lots of opportunities to grow and prosper.
This year, we will support the children with pencils, books and other necessities for their schooling. We visited the school in March 2018 and it touched my soul, heart and mind to see the difference a pen and a book can make. We hope to play a small part in helping young Zambians reach their dreams. Although we sell luxury, getting an education should not be. For every piece of jewellery we sell, Roughdiamonds.dk gives a donation directly to the children and their school.
This is the first time we have done something like this. We don’t have a grand plan yet. We just know that we want to make a positive difference. For now the pupils have books, and we will continue to support them with more teachers, tables, chairs and more.
We want to give you a glimpse of our journey to Chizansa, so my rough diamond of a husband has created this video filled with love.
June - September 2018
Last year we created a Rose Wall with one rose for every piece of our rough diamond jewellery that has found a new home with people who love each other the way they are. Now the roses are back with even more love stories to tell. #Roughdiamondsdk #LoveItLikeItIs #RoseWallCPH
Charity Project in Zambia
My body has just returned home from Zambia in Africa, but a part of my soul, mind and heart has stayed behind. We believe in creating opportunities for everyone and one of the best ways to do it, is education. North Eastern Zambia is in many ways “off the map” and so isolated that regular help organisations rarely makes the journey there. We did.
We, at Roughdiamonds.dk, will now work to create better opportunities for the children and their community. More to follow on this exciting project in the coming months.
Sweethearts in Copenhagen
March - June 2018
A glimpse of our creations and exhibition for the coming months.
If you’re aching to tell the world that you are in love, then Paris’ Pont des Arts might no longer be the destination. The bridge was once covered in 45 tonnes of love locks, but last year officials removed the lovers’ symbols and the bridge railings got a new “Love Lock proof” design.
We hereby invite you to the heart of Copenhagen to show your love.
With every piece of jewellery, we give you your own Love Lock and invite you to hang it on our Love Arch.
Love Cures Everything
January - February 2018
We believe love cures everything. Learning to love imperfection will feed your soul for a lifetime.
No pills needed. Just love.
Baby I'm not like the rest

One rose for every piece of jewellery created
for the people who love each other the way they are
May - September 2017
Spring is here. Celebrate your love and join the Rose Wall in Bredgade, Copenhagen.
There's Always A Wild Side To An Innocent Face
January - May 2017
Carnival offers us a dynamic way of self expression and exploration, a way to seek out our roots, a way to develop new forms of looking at the world and its cultures.
More importantly, a way to unite the world, to discover what we all have in common and to celebrate what makes us different.
Roughdiamonds.dk Christmas 2016
Artist Sophie Dupont Performs “Marking Breath”
Art Performance Event 29th of October 2016
Danish Performance Artist Sophie Dupont perform “Marking Breath” in my Hidden Boutique.
Sometimes it is important to stop and just breathe. That is why I will be welcoming the Danish Performance Artist Sophie Dupont to perform her art “Marking Breath”.
Sophie Dupont’s art explores the ritual repetition of the most important and simple action in life: breathing. With breathing as the starting point of the work, the barrier between art and life is removed. The work depends on breathing like the existence of life itself.
This artwork has been Sophie’s hallmark for years and it is always performed in the same way; from sunrise to sunset she will mark each of her breathes without pause.
She has performed “Marking Breath” all over the world, including the Performance Festival Forma Y Sustancia in San Salvador and the Fountain Art Fair in New York.
It is beautiful when Sophie Dupont uses her body as the medium and transforms her actions into an artwork. For this reason we have chosen a gold pannel for her day with us, that will later be displayed in our hidden boutique. I would, therefore, love to invite you to enjoy Sophie’s performance with us and perhaps join her work by marking your own breath. Any piece of jewellery bought on the day will also get a mark of breath by Sophie in commemoration of this special event.
At sunset we will be toasting to life with a glass of champagne, so join us at Bredgade 56, 1260 Copenhagen K on the
29th of October from sunrise at 8.11 AM to sunset at 17.35 PM.
