Effectives ways to broaden your product range – with something for every retailer!

PHILIPP BECKER | FRITZ WILSHAUS

He is considered one of the pioneers of the “new German wave of coloured gemstones”. In the mid-1980s, he decided to depart from the well-trodden paths of the conservative world, discovering instead the internal beauty of raw precious stones, whilst experimenting and finding ways to accentuate the inclusions through reflection. By honing this forgotten craft, he triggered the renaissance of coloured gemstones – something he could not have predicted and was not understood by the older, more conventional world of gemstones.

TANJA FRIEDRICHS

Tanja Friedrichs creates delicate and fine as well as bold and expressive jewellery almost entirely from beaded wire – a decorative material which has a long tradition in goldsmithery and is made specifically for her collection in silver as well as yellow, rose and palladium white gold. This year, the designer is showing classical, finely worked bracelets and chains with matching earrings. Her delicate rings from the “Libri Solitär” and “Raja” collections are adorned with sparkling brilliants and brightly coloured gemstones.

Goldschmiede Siemons

At Roland Simons’ studio, fine golden bands are handcrafted into beautifully sculpted, sweeping, and flowing chains. The design vocabulary is both extraordinary and unique in character. Be it in classical yellow gold, elegant white gold, delicate rose gold or in cool platinum – every design accentuates the individuality of its wearer. The chains are made in small series and some models are also available in silver.

Barbara Kämereit

Key aspects of the work by Barbara Kämereit include simple design, purist styles and uncomplicated craftsmanship. Carefully selected natural stones and gemstones with special cuts ensure her creations stand out.

The jewellery is always based on an idea such as the repetition of a specific element. This creates mystery, compelling the onlooker to linger. The seemingly spontaneous arrangement reveals a playful approach to the materials.

 

KLEINOD JEWELLERY BY STEFFI KING AND ANDREAS KRIECHBAUM

Trading under the name of Kleinod, Steffi King and Andreas Kriechbaum run their studio in Constance together. They make individual pieces of jewellery with traditional techniques, as well as wedding bands, eternity rings and engagement rings.

At INOVA COLLECTION 2020, Kleinod is presenting the collections Muschel, Altes Eisen, Frisch gewickelt, PAGT and Verlobung (engagement).

 

Thomas Knauf Design

Thomas Knauf is the allrounder in this Area. He sees himself as a service provider, a partner, and a source of ideas for goldsmiths and jewellers. Besides making turned and cut pieces from every kind of material imaginable, he also offers laser engravings, 3D designs and the making of wax models for castings. At INOVA COLLECTION 2020, he will be unveiling his unique fountain pens for the first time which, with the exception of the nib, are all made in his studio. One of his most striking products is the “Vario Ring System”, an extensive design tool with which goldsmiths and jewellers can create an infinite number of unique rings.

Art de Lipsch | Silke Lipsch

The winner of the GOLDEN NOVA audience award in 2019, Silke Lipsch is presenting her work at INOVA COLLECTION 2020 for the first time. Successfully reconciling nature and metal, she interprets blossoms, corals and even mildew mainly in silver.
She seeks inspiration from her own garden, on holiday by the sea and in books about botany. Her creations are also influenced by the ways in which flora and fauna are changing due to climate change. In doing so, she draws on unusual materials, such as fuchsite and coal.
