Juliet Elliott / custom [Titan's]

April 29th, 2011

We are super stoked that Juliet Elliott is still rocking Sofus straps. It’s a real shame that not more girls here in Denmark are into fixed gear freestyle at the moment. But with Juliet being a role model, we are hoping to see more girls tricking.. even here in Denmark :)

That’s one of the reasons we asked her in the first place. A couple of weeks ago we postet some amazing pictures that really shows that she got style and talent, big time. Not just because she is a girl. But because she has talent. So come on girls – buy a FGFS bike and get going..

We shipped this set of (size small/medium) [Titan] straps over to Juliet last week and they look so sweet on her bike. We custom made the straps to match the colors of her Charge Scissor.

    Zoe, it is quite hard to make any kind of living as a degesnir maker. When I was doing fairs down south most people had another job as well, teaching, working in pubs etc.To be a successful degesnir /maker I think you also have to also be good at marketing and networking. Etsy/folksy only really work if you have a good following to start with and then keep your shop full and let everyone know about it all the time. It is hard to stand out from the crowd if I saw your bracelet at a craft fair I would probably stop and try it on as lapis is one of my favourite stones would I buy it? No because I could not afford it would I offer to do a swop with you for an embroidered picture?Most certainly.One thing that I did notice about the jewellers at craft fairs is that they all seemed to have their own customer base. I know that there were 3 that I liked to buy from and I stuck to them because if I bought ear-rings, I knew that the bangle/ ring / necklace I bought from them another time would go They each had a unique style that was reflected in all their work.Making and selling your work is not an easy path to travel Zoe and I wish you luck. I think that you are naturally a very creative person with a good eye judging by the makes you have posted here. Even if your early sales only give you enough money to buy more materials and develop a style and a range. Then that would be a brilliant spring board.KPS Jewellers always did well at fairs

    I was wondering [ a bit off topic ] about the value of isrcitoems. Especially for those who would like to keep on their edge but are in an office building all day. Any tips there?Be Well.Jc

Mike Giant on life

I was in San Francsico last month to shoot photos for www.sidewalktalk.dk and met up with Mike Giant and made a short interview with him about his philosophy on life. Besides from being an artist and a interesting well spoken dude, mike is a bike enthusiast. I really dig his ride.. Check out the interview and share with the world.

In the last few months I have been working on a project where I have been filming and  photographing random people in the sidewalks of Vejle. I have been trying to portrait people in a natural way. Even though most of the portraits are posed, none of the persons in the photos or the film have been preparing for the shoots. So there have been very little time for them to think about how they look or which clothes they wear.

I would like to thank all the people who helped and who have lined up for filming. I hope you enjoy watching it and please share it on your facebook, google+ or whatever. And feel free to comment. I would love to hear your opinion.
