Statement

What is particularly distinctive about Christa Lühtje's jewellery is its naturalness of form, free from fashionable compromise and extravagance. Brooches, rings, necklaces and bracelets testify to the sculptural dynamic and formal volition behind her work. They seem to have evolved from archaic origins. The ever changing interplay of colours - equally in tune with severely geometrical and freely ornamental forms - is clear, simple and of the utmost elegance / Mechthild Lobisch
