Karen Strand (1924–2000) was one of the first students to study at the Goldsmiths College in Copenhagen. In 1954 began working with the jewellers A. Dragsted, and later became their leading designer and director. From 1962, she ran her own workshop in central Copenhagen.

Anton Michelsen (1809–1877) established his own company in Copenhagen in 1841. He became the royal jeweller, and exhibited at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1855. After his death, the company was run by his son and grandson. The company worked with many notable designers including Arnold Krog, Thorvald Bindesbøll, Arne Bang and Edvard Kindt-Larsen.
