About Marlene Juhl-Jørgensen

Marlene Juhl-Jørgensen is a Danish qualified goldsmith educated in Copenhagen through four years of apprenticeship. After graduation she moved to New York for 4 years to complete a Master degree in Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design in combination with studies at the Jewellery Art Institute. In 1993, after a successful solo exhibition at an estimated jewellery gallery back in Copenhagen, the growing demand for her jewellery design led to the establishment of her own workshop with  hired staff before eventually opening the shop ”Figaros Bryllup” in Copenhagen in the fall that same year. Over the years Marlenes design pieces have also been sold in exclusive jewellery boutiques and high end stores in fashion capitals around Europe and in The United States to a devoted style consious clientele. In 2003 Marlene was headhunted by the global Danish fashion brand Day Birger & Mikkelsen to design an exclusive silver jewellery collection , which instanly became a classic. This led to further collaboration as Marlene became a part of their accessories design team. She remained at Day until 2005, where she joined creative director Peter Ingwersen to found the ethical luxury label NOIR. The brand quickly gained global attention for its ability to succesfully combine sensuality and luxury with sustainability.


Inspiration & Material

The collection of jewellery is a blend of special crafted one-of-a-kind pieces, limited edition series in gold or silver and custommade pieces designed witin the range of Marlene’s aesthetic universe. Inspiration derives from the classical cultures of the Ancient World , the splendor of Indian Maharajas and the traditions from the royal family houses of Europe.  These antique and ethnical references together with old techniques are interpreted and combinated in new surprising ways leading to a stylish expression both classical and modern with an edge. The materials used are ranging from pink and yellow gold, platinum and silver, often oxidised, in combination with handpicked precious stones and diamonds in both traditonal cuts and more rare antique cuts. South Sea pearls of exquisite quality are contrasted with handmade silver chains or hand tied leather. Stone colours are subtle and untraditional emphasized by elegant subdued tones of yellows, browns and rose.
