Blooming Boutique Presents Trollbeads Artist Tomas Censius from Denmark

Tomas is a self-taught designer who has created jewelry for Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

Blooming Boutique will have a Meet the Artist Wine Reception on Wednesday, December 4th from 4pm-7pm. at their downtown Lewes store located at 107 Second Street.  Tomas Censius is a self-taught designer who has created jewelry for Denmark's Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.  But despite his Royal connections, he prefers designing quality jewelry like the new X by Trollbeads collection, which has a high level of individuality and anyone can afford to enjoy. While coming to the United States for a special NYC launch, he will only be making one mid-Atlantic stop to Blooming Boutique.

Tomas Cenius describes his style as clean Nordic design combined with figurative forms. He began his career modeling comic book figures in clay before learning the art of wax modeling from Søren Nielsen who created the first Trollbeads. Under Søren's tuition Tomas became a master of the craft and gained notoriety for the exquisite 'Seasons' ring. "Essentially my goal is to make bold, stylish jewelry that touches people. I give the same attention to every piece, whether it is for the Royal couple or the lady next door." "When I work with Trollbeads I like the fact that I design something that defines human emotions." "My role model was Kaj Nielsen, a great modeler. He taught me the most important tool when you are making sculptures: To work with the shadow boundary!"

For Tomas, the beauty of the X by Trollbeads collection is the way it can be customized. The way the pieces have a personality, creativity and style of their own and can be worn either as standalone items or alongside others: "When working on the X by Trollbeads collection, I wanted to design pieces that defined human emotions, whether it was ‘raw elegance’, ‘adventure’ or 'playfulness’. I’m interested in my pieces touching people, helping them achieve their own sense of personal style. In order to do this, they must have personality and soul."

Before his X by Trollbeads designs began to take shape, Tomas thought long and hard about what subjects he would focus on. Inspired by his love of Chinese culture, his adopted Chinese daughter and a desire to create pieces that had a deep spiritual dimension, he chose the animals of the Chinese Zodiac.  He was determined that the finished X links captured the individuality of the different animal personalities in the Zodiac. And that they evoked feelings that “people could relate to”

suffice to say, he’s very pleased with the finished X links. “I think all the pieces have great expressions of individuality and are very complete in terms of their form. And most of all, I think they have meaning, personality and soul.”
