unique jewelry making 

What makes our jewelry special, beside it is all handcrafted?

Forms, structures, unevenness are the source of beauty and naturalness. Fine, uneven surfaces in combination with classic jewelry forms are combined with each other in lost, antique casting techniques and give them a special aura.

The production of jewelry in lost castings, such as Sand and Ashanti castings, combines nature with the original craftsmanship within the process. This energy remains in the jewelry and is absorbed when worn.

Well as lively aura. 

 

Each piece is individually handcrafted in a small workshop in the heart of Cologne with attention to detail. 

Always open to new ideas and forms that our environment gives us. 

Was macht unseren Schmuck so besonders, abgesehen davon, dass er in Handarbeit hergestellt wird?

Formen, Strukturen, Unebenheiten sind die Quelle von Schönheit und Natürlichkeit. Feine, unebene Oberflächen in Kombination mit klassischen Schmuckformen werden in verlorenen, antiken Gusstechniken miteinander kombiniert und verleihen ihnen eine besondere Ausstrahlung.

Die Herstellung von Schmuck im verlorenen Gussverfahren, wie z.B. Sand- und Ashanti-Guss, verbindet die Natur mit der ursprünglichen Handwerkskunst im Prozess. Diese Energie verbleibt im Schmuckstück und wird beim Tragen aufgenommen.

Ebenso wie Ihre lebendige Aura. 

 

Jedes Stück wird in einer kleinen Werkstatt im Herzen von Köln mit viel Liebe zum Detail einzeln handgefertigt. 

Immer offen für neue Ideen und Formen, die unsere Umwelt uns gibt. 

ashanti cast from ghana

Ashanti casting is a complex process in a so-called lost casting. Wax models are coated in several steps with a mass of fireclay, bentonite and horse dung, which is then hardened in the sun or at a warm place. The wax model from the inside melts out and forms a negative mould, which can then be filled with gold or silver, for example. The mould as well as the wax model are destroyed in the process - each piece of jewellery is a unique casting and an absolute unique piece.

the sand casting

Sand casting also works on the principle of the lost cast, which means that the mould is destroyed or burnt after a single use to remove the cast body. An imprint of the model is made in the sand which can be poured directly through a sprue channel with liquid metal such as gold and silver.
Because of the surface of the sand and the possibility to create lively surfaces and new forms with simple tools, this technique is suitable for creating wonderfully interesting unique pieces. Every piece gets its own character and is unique.
