Artist list

Stephanie Jendis, Julie Mollenhauer
Stephanie Jendis was born in Gottingen, Germany and studied in Pforzheim at both the Fachhochschule fur Gestaltung and the Berufskolleg fur Formgebung. Since 1995 her work has been exhibited in several international group and solo shows. In 2002 she was awarded the Encouragement prize, ‘Landesausstellung.’ From 2003-2004 she was a guest professor of stone cutting at the esteemed Fachhochschule Idar-Oberstein and in 2005 received a two-year-fellowship from the 'Fonds foor Beeldende Kunsten'. Stephanie currently lives in Berlin.

Stones are where my work starts. I use natural stones, as well as crystalline and stone shapes, which I make from other materials like wood or plastic. My work consists of sorting and grouping-I arrange and re-arrange, create regularities, disorder and exceptions. Precious stones always possess a sense of glamour and secrecy. My jewelry is colorful but not brightly colored. Differences in colors and materials produce moods, which I have sought to capture.
- Stephanie Jendis

Julie Mollenhauer was born in Kassel, Germany. She studied jewellery at Rietveldacademy, Amsterdam and has been exhibiting her work in the international jewellery scene since 1990.
She often use beads and  textile techniques like weaving and plaiting in her work.

My work is often fragile and very flexible, especially those with tiny glass beads wich i use often for bracelets. I like the fact that bracelets more than other jewellry move and slip with the body.
The form is mostly simple and “classic” and it leans towards handcraft and things you can buy at the market through its time-consuming work and appearance.
- Julie Mollenhauer
