Jewellery & Metal (MA)

As a colour-addicted person Julia likes the intensity and the happiness that comes from bright

colours and how it can positively impact our emotions. She feels inspired and addressed by shapes,

haptics, patterns and texture. However, apart from these mostly obvious things, she also very

much appreciates and enjoys traditional craftsmanship. A harmonious interplay of colours, form,

possibly unconventional jewellery materials and the ability to produce high art craftsmanship,

calms and satisfies her.


Moving to London in 2019 was the first time in her life she had lived abroad.

It was only when she emigrated to another country and escaped the confining distance – not only

geographically – that she had the incentive and the opportunity to take a closer look at her origins

and to reflect on them. Ever since she had left her home town after graduating from high school,

she felt welcome and safe when returning to her family. But at the same time she noticed that she

did not fit in any more - if she ever did. It felt like a little leap back in time when she visited her

home town in Bavaria.


Building on her research she came across (German/Bavarian) traditional costume jewellery – a

type of jewellery she had never really paid attention to before. Julia feels that the whole area of

tradition, including costumes, has beautiful aspects. It is so rich in content, in her eyes, that it

deserves a revival. The idea is to give the somewhat dusty and maybe old-fashioned traditional

costume jewellery a new fresh touch in her own style and make it more appropriate for a

contemporary context. A new style with a sense of tradition, ‘Heimat’ (home) and a contemporary

touch. Facing feelings and emotions, to try to minimise the discrepancy, explore and reconnect with

her origins from a new point of view.
