When the ads first broke last fall, world-renowned Scandinavian Silversmith Georg Jensen's original campaign featured Danish model Freha Beha Erichsen with its sexy but approachable photographs by Sebastian Faena.

Those photographs have now been embellished with cross-stitched versions by Danish-Irish artist Inge Jacobsen (some of whose previous work I shared with you here) and re-released as a new interpretation of the ad campaign for the Georg Jensen collection.
