Inhorgenta 2011

Follow

Flying into Munich last Thursday evening for the Inhorgenta Fair, this is why I always insist on a window seat.

I love looking at the patchwork patterns and forms that make up the landscape. The fields surrounding the city were gradiated with shades of white, creating almost a woven texture of muted tones.

I set up for the fair early the next morning amongst the buzz of all the other exhibitors.  Trade Fairs are always exciting because I get to meet so many new clients and gallerists, and discuss my work with them face to face.  

As well as meeting clients, Inhorgenta is also a fantastic chance to admire the work of both the new young designers and the more established brands.  I was lucky to be sharing my stand with friend and fellow jewellery designer Jane Adam so we took turns manning our booth while the other went off exploring the fair.

I loved seeing new work from Frederike Schuerenkaemper and Annette Ehinger. I actually treated myself to a lovely lemon quartz brooch by Annette.

My favourite newcomers of the fair this year were probably Bernhard Simon and Monica Haneckova, but as always, there was so much new talent to get excited about.

It’s been a great few weeks visiting New York and Munich and gathering lots of inspiration. After all this travelling, I’m very much looking forward to getting back in the studio and playing about with some new ideas.
