Janine operates from her own studio in Hamburg, Germany. Every piece is highly quality hand-crafted, using responsibly sourced materials and recycled gold only.
“When I first entered the goldsmithing department, it had happened to me: all the fine tools, the old benches, the smell of oil and metal.
Today I sit at my own bench with gold dust on my hands. To move into the microcosm of jewellery means freedom to me, working with my hands is pure happiness. My fascination for gold as a material is growing, and I imagine how often the shape of gold has been changed again and again through the millennia and through the hands of the craftsmen, goldsmiths and artists. A beautiful idea, as if people remain the same, only the ornaments change.”
