About Us

Beppe Kessler

‘The material is vehicle of my thoughts’
For now I don’t work often with precious metals but prefer to use materials which are less burdened with traditions of jewellery.
The material seduces and asks questions.
‘Meaning’ plays an important role, though I don’t want the pieces to be too easy to read.
Looking for an own language, I explore the limits of what can be called jewellery.
