Jewelry Designer Founder and owner of Friends of Carlotta, Gallery for Contemporary Jewelry, Zurich.



Jewelry is communication. I love to embed jewelry in stories because jewelry and text inspire each other so that something becomes a small universe. My earlier work as a cabaret artist has shaped me, and even as a jewelry designer I have not lost the desire to communicate. Today, however, my jewelry is on stage and maintain a dialogue with friends and strangers. And if I get cheeky, it can get under the Zurich tram and get the finishing touch. In 1990 I founded Friends of Carlotta. What was originally intended as a label for my own jewelry quickly became established as a label for exhibitions with several jewelry designers. In 1995 I opened the Friends of Carlotta jewelry gallery in the old town of Zurich. Today Friends of Carlotta is one of the leading galleries for contemporary jewelry design and, with changing exhibitions and the work of more than 80 represented jewelry designers from all over the world, conveys a lustful cross-section of current jewelry creation.
