JEWELRY DESIGN FROM VIENNA
In my work you can see the clash of three apprenticeships: that of a milliner, a jewelery artist / goldsmith and a theater, film and media scientist. They fertilize and influence each other and enable new and innovative approaches to the topic of jewelry, which does not have to be limited to the hands, ears and neck, but extends to the headdress.
In April 2019 I fulfilled a heartfelt wish and opened a place in the center of Vienna that combines my passion for craft and beautiful things. A place that gives an insight into the process of creating body jewelry and should also provide space for discussion through regular exhibitions and events.
He shows with a lot of love handmade designer jewelry, unique fascinators and a curated selection of artistic, contemporary jewelry pieces by well-known national and international artists.
SUSTAINABLE & FAIR JEWELRY
In the manufacture of jewelry, I attach great importance to the use of fair-produced precious metal: some of the jewelry is made from old gold that I melt down myself. The other part comes from the company ÖGUSSA, which offers certified gold from recycling stocks. I only get gemstones from sources with whom I have worked for years and whom I trust.

LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES
Curious how a ring is made?
The technique of Ossa Sepia casting goes back to the early Middle Ages. For this purpose, a back shoulder of an octopus is used. Every piece of jewelry that is created using this casting technique is unique, if only because of the structure, which is different for every squid shell, but also because of the coincidence that plays a part. A unique ring with a cast diamond is created that is not like any other.
