What a performance! So simple yet so complete. Well played! And even better performed.
Anouk flew us into the finals of the Eurovision contest.
Of course I would have LOVED to have seen her on stage with the stunning Bird Nest necklace, or any other piece, by the Malmö based Swedish jewelry designer, ByBillgren. But her choice to keep it clean and black, is respected.
When I read the VOGUE NL article online today, which zoomed in on what she was wearing yesterday, my hope that she might wear the necklace Saturday...was crushed instantly. The article ended with...'Saturday she will wear the same outfit'.
Anyway, still I want to offer you, as northbound follower, something 'with love from the nordics'.
Until Saturday, until the end of the Eurovision Song contest...FREE SHIPPING on all pieces by ByBillgren.
...because ByBillgren makes one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces which are elegant with a raw edge...and because he is from Malmö. And, because he's NEW in The Netherlands. Get it at the first shop in NL: northbound!
Check out the all of his pieces in our webshop. YOUR DISCOUNT CODE IS: ByBillgren

Eurovision Song contest is this week!
Well, hell yes! Coz a whole different wind is blowing in the Eurovision City of Malmö, Sweden. A fierce and refreshing wind from the Dutch coastal city of The Hague. ANOUK ! Representing us Dutchies!
And I dig her! She's from my hometown, same age, hard working lady...and a great performer. Her voice just burst through in all her songs. Rocky tunes or ballads.
Tomorrow is the start of the Eurovision carousel...! Excited, proud, nervous! But, more exciting will be...will she be wearing jewelry by this great Malmo-based jewelry designer? Johan Billgren has a successful jewelry brand, ByBillgren. Many (music) artists wear his designs, national and international.
Anyway, Johan and I were in contact last month about my first order, exchanging tracking numbers for the delivery etc. And while emailing back and forth, it dawned upon us...there's a deeper meaning to our contact...what if, Anouk, from my home town...singing in his home town...would be wearing his jewelry... .
Great thinking! Well, we think. But, let's see if Anouk wears it!
