Georg Dobler

In 1985, after an early deconstructivist phase, Georg Dobler started complementing his jewelry with organic elements in blackened silver. In the late 1990s, he experimented with the opulence of gemstones, creating pieces characterized by an innovative combination of naturalism and artificiality. Around the turn of the millennium, he introduced minimalist compositions featuring polished amethyst or quartz slices set in blackened silver frames. His Beetle Brooches created since 2005 under the title à la Lalique clearly reveal he was inspired by this great Art Nouveau master. Dobler, who counts among the most important contemporary jewelry artists of today, recently started designing abstract, geometrical and technology-inspired pieces again.
