Trained in Germany, traditional techniques and craftsmanship are at the heart of all Sabine Konig's designs.
"My Jewellery is bold, classic and elegant, complementing both casual and formal wear. Having been inspired by my love for ancient Japanese Art, particularly the combination of blackened steel and gold lacquer, I have explored this contrast by my use of engraved and delicately pierced gold vermeil juxtaposed with black rhodium backgrounds. These layers give my pieces greater depth, enhanced by the magnifying quality of naturally clear as well as green Quartz."
