„The true value of a piece of jewellery lies in the emotions it evokes in the person wearing it“
As I am constant thinking of original and challenging ideas new treasures are being created in my studio. Whilst talking and listening to my clients, I am trying to discover their secret wishes thus enabling me to translate a client's initial idea into a beautiful piece of finished jewellery.
Each piece is being made involving a diverse and fascinating dialogue between my mind and hands combined with a unique design to create beautiful, one of a kind and skillfully handcrafted jewellery. At the end each piece tells an individual, special story.
Atelier Teje is featuring several distinctive collections, including:
reinterpreted traditional jewellery, little silver or golden angels for christening or first communion, cuff links as well as napkin rings/eggcups for Easter.
She uses traditional goldsmithing skills combined with various materials such as leather, metal and gemstones and unique designs to create beautiful, one of a kind skillfully handcrafted jewellery.
I am passionate about the craftmanship of goldsmithery and the precious materials I use. I am grateful to be able to make pieces of enduring value.
I work with the client to design and make her or his own unique, individual, one of a kind skillfully handcrafted jewellery.
All pieces I create are made by hand on site in my studio, using techniques from a repertoire of traditional goldsmithing skills such as sawing, rolling, bending, and hammering:
engagement rings, wedding rings, morning gifts, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, cuff links, as well as table decorations and home accessories.
