Seeking inspiration: Staying ahead of long-term trends
At Livva Østerby, I always strive to stay ahead of long-term trends and draw inspiration from the ever-changing world around us, capturing the zeitgeist of our time. I am fascinated by the culture, theories, and history that shape trends. By analyzing our social identity, our culture and values, the perception of beauty, as well as looking at street style, I sense new ideas and long-term trends that inspire me in creating innovative cool designs.
Embracing opposites to create unique expressions
In my creative process, I embrace the power of opposites to create unique expressions that unite in harmony. From the raw and the smooth to the organic and the stringent, the feminine and the masculine, the detailed and the minimal, and the natural and the technological, I explore contrasting elements that highlight each other's strengths. Through this exploration of opposites, I craft jewellery that is both captivating and harmonious, creating a balanced aesthetic that exudes luxury and extravagance.
Inspired by the beauty of nature and the imagined future
My designs draw inspiration from a myriad of sources, including nature's mesmerizing floral beauty and surreal elements, the wonders of my dreams, futuristic architecture, and the elegance of classical stucco ceilings in old apartments. They reflect my creative process and the visions that guide me. I am both romanticized by the past and intrigued by a sci-fi future yet to come, infusing my jewellery design with an air of cool visionary splendour.
My Current Inspiration: The NatureVerse
Presently, my passion revolves around the NatureVerse—a symbol of my connection to nature and the encompassing beauty it holds. The NatureVerse represents the harmonious coexistence of the natural world and the surreal world of digital / technology. By intertwining these elements in a captivating dance, I have created a new jewellery collection that captures the essence of nature-inspired beauty while incorporating surreal elements and feminine touches within a realm of edgy technology. Experience the lush and luxury allure of the NatureVerse in each meticulously crafted piece here.
From inspiration to creation: The creative process unveiled
My creative process begins by seeking inspiration from the physical and digital wonders of the world. I engage in extensive trend analysis, collecting inspiration into moodboards that confirm my hunches and provide an overview of my analyses. Below is the moodboard that inspired my NatureVerse collection:
Next, I translate these ideas into detailed sketches, investing ample time and care into capturing the shapes and forms. I often use colour to bring these sketches to life, gaining a better understanding of their potential and the richness they can exude. See the colours brought to life in my sketch-video below:
To further refine my designs, I bring them to life through 3D modeling, allowing for greater exploration and creating intricate and captivating designs. This approach minimizes metal waste, offers design flexibility, and enables me to push the boundaries of creativity, resulting in advanced luxurious pieces that embody innovation and craftsmanship.
When the 3D models are ready for casting, I meticulously craft each piece using traditional techniques. Every curve, texture, and gemstone are thoughtfully considered, resulting in meticulously executed designs that exude excellence and opulence. I pay close attention to surface finishes, choosing between high-polished or satin matte textures, and expertly handle stone settings and the selection of real pearls, ensuring each piece is a true work of art.
