Ursula Gnädinger’s jewelry is imposing and expressive, but never ungainly or coarse. And it is astonishingly much lighter than it appears. Her favorite material is silver, but she loves “metal mix” even more.
She combines her silver jewelry pieces with webs of fine steel. Often, one side is layered with fine gold. Some forms, especially the round ones, need gold to bring out their best, she says. Silver is less saturated, she says, and more withdrawn. In a collection she created for VANICY of Europe, she mixed silver with rough natural stone, like basalt, granite, or Bahia blue granite.
“Perfectly formed body sculptures,” writes the trade press. Jewelry from “Gnädinger” has long since become a successful trademark transcending Germany’s borders.
