Birgit Laken


I strive for it, the emotional impulse, which gave me the energy to work out my idea, being perceptible in the results. Then there will be communication possible on another level.
It can bring out something to the wearer or the contemplator.
For this reason, jewellery, so close to our body, is a valuable exchange of thoughts and feelings.
