Our jewelry is awarded
We are incredibly proud: Our Wilderness jewelry collection wins the German Design Award 2022. Our enthusiasm for the idea of capturing the wild spirit of nature in our jewelry and letting it speak for itself is shared. We are very happy about that. When we first thought of translating this special feeling of nature into jewelry, we were faced with a big question: "Aren't we taking on too much? Is it possible to put all this into jewelry? All the awe, the wonder, the fear and forlornness, the security? All the contradiction and harmony? The depth of feeling. Where else is all this possible at the same time?
How do you translate feelings into jewelry?
Our answer: Not everything has to be tangible at the same time. It is only important that we feel nature when we design our jewelry, that we feel connected to it when we forge our jewelry. Because it is clear that we can never be sure what of what we want to communicate will actually be understood. The important thing is that we try. That we feel what our heart tells us and pass on this feeling in our jewelry. The German Design Award is therefore much more for us than a design prize, it shows us that our love is shared, that we are on the right path.
The guiding principle: minimalism
Jewelry seems to be both ideally suited and not suited at all as a medium for emotions. Sometimes a piece of jewelry can get to the heart of something that a thousand words cannot say. Like an engagement ring does. But what about an original, even archaic, experience of nature? Difficult. But then we got back to our values: Minimalism. And we designed delicate pieces of jewelry. Full of love, full of wildness, full of wonder. Always reduced, never too loud. Not too much at once.
An award for the Wilderness collection
With all the doubts that surround every creative process, we are incredibly proud and overjoyed that we are understood. That our jewelry label was awarded the German Design Award 2022. For sustainable jewelry design. For wildness and tenderness. For our Wilderness Collection.
What is the German Design Award
The German Design Award honors outstanding design - that is, design that is full of ideas. Ideas that address the challenges of our time with beauty, with solutions. A top-class, international jury selects the designers who break new ground with projects, ideas and designs that are interesting and creative - and have been doing so for ten years now.
