The art of crumpled gold

  • • Ines has been a goldsmith since the early 1980s
  • • She combines her native German precision with Italian style and design
  • • Her signature technique is crumpled gold

Ines Döllert is an artist and artisan who has been a goldsmith since the early 1980s. When she speaks about her craft and craftsmanship, she does not forget to mention all the difficulties related to it: "It is a time-consuming job, tiring for one’s eyes and hands, and you need strength as well as infinite patience." Yet, she still loves working with precious metals, shaping them at her will to create beautiful jewellery pieces that are both light and strong, valuable and easy to wear. Ines developed her creative expression quite early on. She spent three years in an apprenticeship in a master goldsmith’s workshop in Germany, working on her professional degree at the same time, and soon moved to Italy where she developed her signature style.
