Before she developed her formabina collection, Bettina Geistlich taught at the Vocational College for Art and Design in Zurich and at the Edinburgh College of Art. In her pieces, the shape, material and crafting technique are inseparable. The airy, flexible body of her yedris ring’s flower sphere is composed of six identical flowers crafted from round wire. With its articulated and softly jingling bands the trema bangle combines austere geometry with a playful and sensual wearing experience. Vimina is the name she chose for a ring crafted from gold wire that winds endlessly around a golden core. With her Circulus ring everything revolves around the diamond. In 2006 and 2010, this Swiss jewelry designer won the iF Product Design Award for three of her pieces and in 2009 was awarded the “Best of the Best” Red Dot Design Award.
