Individual pieces of jewellery are also made according to your ideas.

Stone books and self-cut opals

Blauer Baldower - Patricia von Tugginer

Blauer Baldower - Patricia von Tugginer

By experimenting, developing, changing, conceiving, exposing, designing, fantasising, constructing, misappropriating - in short, baldowering - unique pieces, small series and light objects are created that do not always quite fit the term upcycling. Rather, existing things are often given a new purpose, whether old or new. So tarpaulins, wine crates but also infusion bottles sometimes become light objects; wrestling mats, school wall cards and ties become bags.
