"Erste schmuckkantine"- working in enamel presents twelve artists and a variety of enamel jewellery. 

These impressive results, including the catalogue, are attributed to the commitment of the four-person-team Schmuckkantine, its organisation and will to bring together jewellery soloists. The neologism „Schmuckkantine-Jewelry Canteen“ releases a number of justified associations: A group of people coming together in one place, will be supplied with exchanges and separate, refreshed and energised. In this specific case Karoline Peisker, Jasmin Matzakow, Claudia Küster and Mareen Alburg Duncker invited the other artists to a ten-day jewelry workshop. 

The choice for the venue fell upon the Erfurter Künstlerwerkstätten. Contributing factors for this choice were the excellent working conditions. There are two ovens, the necessary goldsmith tables and generous working space.The initiators had the idea that a meeting of jewellery artists with varied pools of experience, gained from previous teachings and professional activity as well as the collected material and workshop skills, would provide an enormous asset for all parties joining. Just as relevant was the aspect of presenting oneself beyond the university context and the question of how, for example, exhibitions and trade fairs can be organised together economically. 

The result of the first workshop are, for one, the superb pieces of work, as well as the planning of a website and the consequent development of a network.The innovative project Schmuckkantine is living proof/proves that it is possible for artits to work together without rivalry and without sacrificing the individuality of each person.
