Juliette Sallin, aka Gang of Freyja, is an illustrator and cut paper artist who works on a miniature scale. She’s recently created a series of “pocket talisman,” which feature stylized hands and paper flowers encased in small glass jars. The exquisite creations are small enough to fit between two fingers—and put in your pocket for good luck. “I like to think of my paper cuts as tiny treasures that reveal a secret we all carry deep inside,” she says. “[That] our innate relationship with our world is lighthearted and sensuous.”
The Gang of Freyja has a special meaning to Juliette. “According to the Norse mythology,” she explains, “Freyja is the Goddess of Love and Beauty. Her magic is deeply connected to the natural realm, like her coat made of falcon feathers that allows her to fly wherever she wants, or her necklace made of gold and amber that makes her irresistible.” Continuing, “Freyja is for me the embodiment of an enchanted living, connected with the environment and the magic that pervades everything.”
