Cornelia Sautter crochets the jewelry in her metal collection from slender silver wires, which a galvanic coating makes stable and comfortably wearable. Little silver beads in her band rings intensify the lighting effects created by the stitched texture and enhance the volume. Stalk rings is the phrase this academically trained designer from Stuttgart uses to describe her opulent rings with synthetic or natural gemstones. The settings are “sewn” onto the rings; nothing is soldered or filed: the solitaire rings accordingly seem delicate and airy, despite their large precious stones. The filigreed bodies of the ball-shaped pendants are likewise crocheted by hand. Galvanically treated fine silver makes light sparkle and glitter in the whorls of the stitches. Tiny eyelets between the balls interconnect them and allow the spherules to move gently. “They cuddle close to their wearer like the sea foam on a breaking wave,” says Cornelia Sautter.
