Bernd Wolf jewelry designs come to the Santa Fe gallery from Germany’s Black Forest
From Germany’s Black Forest, Bernd Wolf and his wife, Yvonne, create jewelry designs that reflect the spirit of our times. The synergistic philosophy and minimalist language of the Wolf collections marry high-quality cut gemstones and uniquely textured precious metals with the symbolism of form and material. Using sterling silver and high grade 23k gold plating that is skin-compatible in combination with diamonds, carnelian, kyanite, onyx, pearls, smoky quartz, black spinel, turquoise and sponge coral, Wolf offers pleasing and sophisticated yet simple and distinctive designs.
“An accomplished piece of jewelry is imbued with a charm that fascinates and inspires the beholder. For us, the entire creative process, starting from the moment of opting for a new material via designing the gemstone cuts to the first finished piece, is always exciting and enthralling,“ Wolf offered.
Though Wolf attends to every minute technical detail of his work, he finds particular satisfaction in utilizing symbolism in his vocabulary of forms. Each gem plays an important role for Wolf in the design process as each gem has a specific purpose and affect on the individual wearer. It is this synergy of material and form that makes each piece unique and tells its own little story.
Sorrel Sky Gallery owner, Shanan Campbell Wells, is enamored with Wolf’s collections, stating, “The simplicity and beauty of the collections make the jewelry a favorite to wear everyday.”
