Minimalist jewellery

  • • Josef runs a showroom at OXO Tower
  • • He is a graduate of the Arts and Crafts College in Vienna
  • • He fuses sterling silver with a 24-carat gold overlay

Jewellery making has always fascinated Josef Koppman, since a young age the artisan was intrigued by the mysterious process of shaping hard metal into intricate forms. Today Josef’s splendid jewellery art is exhibited in leading galleries across Europe. His signature technique is fusing sterling silver with a 24-carat gold overlay. The artisan is not shy about playing with symmetry, creating original patterns, and experimenting with geometrical shapes. Every piece is handmade in his London studio using traditional goldsmithing techniques and applying a trademark master’s touch. Josef's works are extremely visual and have graced the pages of world fashion, lifestyle, and jewellery publications.
