Inge Jockers’ passion for unique hand created jewelry inspired her to fabricate her own designs. The characteristic features of her jewelry are rich textured surfaces and a sometimes rough beauty reminiscent of antique handcrafted pieces. Hammering, stamping, forming as well as applying heat to silver and watching it change until the right pattern and shape is achieved are techniques used . She uses the traditional Korean technique Keum-Boo to bond 24k gold foil to fine silver. Gemstones add color and sparkle.
To care for your jewelry use a silver cleaning cloth and lightly polish the surface. Don’t dip the pieces in silver cleaner. Pieces that are all gold and black don’t need any cleaning.
