Lina Christensen finished training as a goldsmith in 1985 and later went to a trade school that specialised in gold and silver. In 1989 she worked as a goldsmith at the Georg Jensen Silver Smithy studio and began working as a designer in 1999.
Christensen opened her own independent jewellery gallery in 1991 and her work has been shown as part of numerous exhibits, in Denmark as well as internationally. Christensen’s jewellery is inherently Scandinavian, as is evident in her work. Tight, organic lines form the basis of her clean design language. She is a contemporary artist building on the legacy of her Danish heritage and training. One can see the relationship of her works to those of the great names of the golden age of Danish design, like Henning Koppel for example. The look is modern and elegant.
A great example of her classic Scandinavian handiwork is seen in her 2002 collection Extra, which was a very popular debut and continues to be a favourite jewellery design. Christensen’s progression from goldsmith to designer represents Georg Jensen’s longstanding tradition of growing and nurturing the artists with which they work.
