Regine Schwarzer

La Regine treballa les formes geomètriques inspirant-se en les pedres naturals i els seus cristalls. M’encanta la seva feina!

Regine works with geometric shapes inspired in natural gemstones and crystals. I love her jewels!

“Living in Australia has influenced my work profoundly through discovering my passion for rocks and minerals which occur in abundance here. For a number of years I myself have been collecting, processing and cutting the stones I use in my work inspired by their colours. The crystalline formations of minerals which grow in a variety of different systems stimulate me to construct both jewellery and objects that reference and utilize gems and minerals. My art practice is a continual exploration of the possibilities offered by engaging with minerals, rocks and metal. I use and interpret this material in various ways: its actual form, cut, uncut and as interpretations of the crystalline structure.”

Prizes were awarded for innovation, best interpretation of theme and best use of crystal.

‘Swarovski is delighted to continue this nine year collaboration with Central Saint Martins. We are always excited to see how, through their unique vision, each young designer demonstrates the creative possibility of crystal in jewellery design.’ – Nadja Swarovski.

Giles Last, Head of Jewellery at Central Saint Martins said, ‘The Swarovski sponsorship is a terrific opportunity for our students to explore and experiment with a wide range of Swarovski products, as well as meeting a variety of influential people from the jewellery industry.‘
