Chanette has built up the JUKSEREI label to what it is now. From founding the label as a hobby next to her full-time job in 2012, to hiring Anne as her first employee and establishing the studio in Berlin. It was her wish since childhood to create a jewelry label with simple, affordable and nickel free pieces and to grow organically with the right clients and partners. Chanette has made the transformation from founder to wife, to mother in the past years and relocated with her adorable family to the North of Denmark in 2020, where she loves
to enjoy nature and preferably spends her time off outdoors with her loved ones–gardening, picking
flowers, growing veggies or cooking a delicious meal over an open fire in their garden. She's the queen of hygge and if there were 48 hours in a day, we bet she would start a papeterie business. Oh, and did we mention she has a weak spot for everything christmas?

Most worn JUKSEREI piece?
That's a tough question, since I only make pieces I love to wear! Right now my go to piece is our SOLAR Ear Studs. Being a mom of two kids, I don't always have much time to get ready. The Solar Ear Studs are something I can just put on and feel like I am a little dressed up even though I am not wearing fancy clothes or makeup.
Coffee or tea?
Hocus pocus, I need coffee to focus.
When are you ultimately relaxed?
When I can spend Christmas at home in Denmark with my family. It's so nice to relive my childhood during that period, keep the cosy traditions alive and show them to my new little family. I love to make Danish christmas cookies and cakes like æbleskiver and watch Disney's Christmas Show. My husband and I also love to get away to a small cottage in the middle of nowhere with a fireplace and watch the snow fall outside while curling up on the couch with a blanket and board games. Exactly like we did on our honeymoon.
A local recommendation?
I can really recommend Gobento in Prenzlauer Berg, where I used to live. It's a tiny Japanese place where they serve Japanese Bento boxes: a home-packed meal typical in Japanese cuisine. Unlike the conventional restaurants, at Gobento you can bring your own drinks, there is only one dish on the menu and it's reasonably priced. It's creative, delicious and original. I'd recommend making a reservation because it is a small place that fills up fast!
