PANDORA’s History
Back in 1982, the jeweler’s shop that would one day become PANDORA was established by the goldsmith P. Enevoldsen and his wife in modest surroundings on Nørrebrogade in Copenhagen, Denmark. They often travelled to Thailand in search of jewellery for importing, and as demand for their wares increased, the company focus shifted to the wholesale business..

In 1987, after several highly successful years as wholesalers, the company discontinued its retail activities and moved to larger premises. After a few more years as wholesalers, Winnie and Per were inspired to open their own factory in Thailand as a means of ensuring, among other things, control of their own designs. Lone Frandsen was hired as a designer, and the company began to focus on creating a unique jewellery brand. In 1996, Lisbeth Larsen, goldsmith and designer, joined the company and, together with Lone, she has played a key role in defining PANDORA’s style.

1999 saw the launch of PANDORA’s ever-popular charm bracelet on the Danish market. Consumers quickly embraced the concept, and PANDORA grew hand in hand with the increase in demand. In foreign markets, interest in selling PANDORA jewellery has also been keen, turning PANDORA into a global brand that is currently sold in 18 countries. PANDORA has gone from a two-man business 25 years ago, to a team of 35 at its head office in Copenhagen, and 1,000 workers at PANDORA Productions

About the Designers
Lisbeth is a trained goldsmith and has been with PANDORA since 1996. She enjoys designing for PANDORA because of the large amount of freedom she has to follow her creative instincts in the development of new jewellery designs. Thanks to her goldsmith training, the path is short from idea to a new design and to a model of the jewellery in wax or silver. Lisbeth sees being able to see the result almost immediately as a huge advantage.

Below are Lisbeth’s answers to three questions about good design, sources of inspiration and her own taste in jewellery.

What do you think good design is?
Good design is something that arouses your curiosity, and something you might even fall head over heels for. We have a proud tradition for design in Denmark, and I find that even though I might not want a particular piece of designer furniture in my own living room, I can still feel excited about and get that “wow effect” from good design!

Where do you find your inspiration?
At the moment, I am very inspired by the organic shapes found in nature, and it is often the tiny details and more abstract shapes that catch my imagination. But often it is also the process itself that inspires me. I tend to bring out the shape in the material on the basis of small rough sketches, and a shape can actually change a good deal while I’m working with it.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
I once made a very special gold ring with diamonds, and I’ve worn it now for the last seven years. I’m pretty loyal to my jewellery and don’t change it very often, but PANDORA’s new earrings, Mix & Match, which you can combine as you like, have taught me to experiment a bit more. They give me the freedom to be practical during the day and fancy in the evening.

Lone, a trained goldsmith who has been with PANDORA since 1988, has helped define PANDORA’s style ever since the company first started producing its own jewellery. Her style is both classic and modern. She creates cutting-edge designs that follow the trends of fashion – but it is also important for her that the jewellery has a classic touch which makes it durable.

Below are Lone’s answers to three questions about good design, sources of inspiration and her own taste in jewellery.

What do you think good design is?
Quality and good craftsmanship are some of the most important aspects to me! But if I had to highlight one special aesthetic that I love and that has influenced a lot of good design, it would have
to be Scandinavian simplicity – from its realisation in classic Danish furniture craftsmanship to the dominating look in contemporary fashion.

Where do you find your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from anywhere, from a walk in the city to international fashion fairs, where I search more actively and attempt to create jewellery that is in tune with the times. I am often inspired by objects with a shape or pattern that I just find fascinating – like a wallpaper pattern or the shape of a vase – and that I can “translate” into jewellery.

What is your favourite piece of jewellery?
I love my gold ring with a beautiful rhodolite, because I really think it suits me. But I am most proud of a series of earrings that you can combine yourself. I love the idea that each woman can use her own creativity to create exactly the pair she feels best suits her personality
