HEY, we are ASTONISH and we are all super excited! Do you know why? It will be our 5th Birthday soon and because it is much nicer to party with friends, we invite you!  You can join us to take part in one of our five venues in 2020. Our Kick-Off venue will be Schmuck 2020 at Internationale Handwerksmesse, Munich.
The last five years have been very exciting and we all have experienced and learned a lot along this way. We are all about promoting Jewellery and bringing sparkling minds together for new connections & ideas.

So we shout out to you! We offer you the possibility to be our guest and exhibit with us at Schumuck Munich 2020. You will get the opportunity to take part in this vibrant event and you have the chance to show your work at the hotspot during Schmuck Munich. So be our guest, show us your Bling and send us your Gem, which expresses a festive spirit.

For five more years to come, let us drink a toast to Astonish!

#Bring your own Jewellery

About Us:
We are Astonish. An international collective of six female makers who met in the misty, magical valley of Idar-Oberstein. Our passion for making is driving us. We found each other to spread and expose our ideas of jewellery and adornment. During the last five years, we realised how enriching our diversity is and how much we inspire each other.

Astonish is travelling and exhibiting internationally at venues such as the Jewellery Hotspot Schmuck in Munich, Melting Point in Valencia, Spain or Jewellery Silver Festival in Legnica, Poland.
