PAULA PANTOLIN – BIOGRAPHY
I am Paula, the founder of the jewellery brand Pantolin Fine Jewellery. I was brought up in a Swedish family with a grandmother who was a couture artist and a mother who is a painter. I used to sit on the floor in my mothers studio with my sketchbook drawing in deep concentration while my mother was painting. I knew early on that art was the way of living for me.
After many years of study, a Bachelor degree in Art and a Master degree in Fine Art I decided to run my own business. Pantolin Fine Jewellery established in 2006, and the profile is exclusive commissions and jewellery collections with high quality in every little detail. As a birthday gift for the ten year anniversary in 2016 I launched La Maison Bagatelle which is the affordable and playful luxury bijoux brand in the Pantolin design house. www.lamaisonbagatelle.com
Many women of Paula’s family have been educated artists, and that is a legacy to be proud of. The legacy of creating art, and to believe in it. It was never about choosing a profession, working creatively was in her blood and her grandmothers drawing case is with her everywhere. Just in case.
It is important for our company to continuously work with good ethics. We only collaborate with suppliers that agrees on good working conditions. We accept no child labour and require good equipment in the workshops.
We care about Mother Earth, and we try to use as much recycled metal as possible in our jewellery. We melt down old jewellery, and create a new unique pieces of art. We keep on developing this and the aim is to reach 100% recycled metal. We continously control our metals in laboratory so that the alloys we use are safe for everyday use and does not contain led, nickel or cadmium (heavy metals).
We take responsibility when we carefully select our precious stones and metals from sourced mines.
