Anke Hennig’s jewelry is an eye-catching symbiosis of ambitious creativity and a traditional textile technique. This Dresdner designer discovered that Häkelgalon, a 19th-century braiding technique, is an ideal medium for making innovative contemporary jewelry. Flat braids of fine threads, made up of colored nylon, cotton, silk and other filaments, are wound around and over one another to form a spiral with an unusual three-dimensional aesthetic. The resulting pieces of jewelry have an appearance and a surface whose origins are difficult to explain. The jewelry’s delicate elegance and decorative volume are simultaneously this creator’s characteristic feature – and her secret! The prices of the pieces are between 50 and 500 euros.
