Sehwege Handmade Wool Jewelry

Such serendipity to meet designer Catrin Schmid-El Gendi of Sehwege at THEKEY.TO Berlin showcase last week. This well-spoken anthropologist turned jewelry/accessories designer had the purest, most poetic wool jewelry pieces on display. I hesitate to refer to Sehwege as jewelry per se, as these designs are really more like modular pieces that you can interchange and add to according to your styling needs. The simple magnetic (closure) ends allow you to extend the length of a necklace or bracelet, for example, or combine various colors to your liking. All pieces are 100% wool and hand-crafted by the designer in Düsseldorf. 

Be on the lookout for more innovative ideas from Catrin. She is really into her craft as you can see in this energetic photo below.
