Celebrating Diversity: My Journey in Jewelry Design for Helsinki Pride 2024

Helsinki Pride 2024 is organized from 24 to 30 June 2024, and I can feel the excitement in the air! For those who aren't familiar, Helsinki Pride is a vibrant celebration of the LGBTQ+ community, held annually in the heart of Finland's capital. It began as a small gathering in the late 1970s and has grown into one of the largest Pride events in the Nordic region. The festival promotes equality, human rights, and solidarity, offering a platform for voices that need to be heard. Walking through the streets during Pride week, you'll see colorful parades, joyful faces, and an overwhelming sense of unity and acceptance. It's a time when Helsinki transforms into a beacon of love, inclusion, and diversity.

Growing up in a rather conservative family and society, I didn't have much exposure to LGBTQ+ issues. My mother, in particular, held quite traditional views. However, everything changed one summer when she visited me in Finland. I suggested we attend the Helsinki Pride parade together, not knowing what to expect. The experience was eye-opening for both of us. The vibrant atmosphere, the joyous celebrations, and the powerful messages of love and acceptance left a deep impression on us. My mother's perspective began to shift as she witnessed firsthand the importance of such events in promoting understanding and inclusivity. This transformation made me realize how vital it is to celebrate and support diversity. Inspired by this experience, I design a joyful and meaningful Rainbow Collection that supports the LGBTQ+ community and embraces a diverse society, including various sexual orientations and cultures.

To commemorate Helsinki Pride 2024, I'm thrilled to introduce our new Rainbow Collection, starting with the Triple-Flower Drop Earrings and Triple Apple Flower Stud Earrings in vibrant rainbow colors. These pieces are designed to reflect the happiness and brilliance of the Pride celebration. We've chosen a sparkling palette of red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple to capture the essence of the rainbow.


Each color was carefully tested to ensure it shines with a joyful and colorful glow. By wearing these earrings, you're not just adding a touch of glamour to your outfit; you're also showing your support for the LGBTQ+ community and celebrating the beauty of diversity.

So, as we gear up for Helsinki Pride 2024, let's adorn ourselves with colors of love and unity. Whether you're joining the parade or supporting from afar, let’s spread joy and acceptance together. Celebrate diversity, support the LGBTQ+ community, and embrace the spirit of Pride with our new Rainbow Collection!
