Each piece is special •Each unique •All extraordinary
Air & Earth Design reinterprets classic silhouettes using striking natural materials to create one of a kind jewellery. Designed and handmade by Heidi von der Gathen, each piece glimmers with the lustre of semi-precious gems and baroque pearls. This selection of material is what drives the design. Often finding beauty in the unusual, Heidi makes extensive use of the juxtaposition of raw and refined elements in both her Signature and Shimmers lines. Drawing on her sculpture background thought is given to rhythm, texture, space relation and repetition. In her newest line, Shore, Heidi features handmade silver embellishments wrought one by one. All designs are inspired by her travels and nature.
