Sandra Tepla makes bespoke jewellery that is all about texture, line, contrast and colour. Her pieces are handmade from both silver and non-precious materials.
Each design takes on the botanic life that serves as her inspiration, which she documents and explores photography. Sandra’s stated aim is to: “…establish a new form of jewellery that is independent of association with wealth and social status.”
Her latest collection Entwined is reflecting her love for organic forms and use of patina. Primary nine pieces of wearable art are produced from copper wire coated
in silver and beach glass collected from all over Europe. Pendants are suspended from beautifully detailed cord necklaces featuring silver and brass findings.
Use of patina in this collection gives pieces an aged look. Each piece of Entwined jewellery is a statement piece to be reckoned with. Read more
Her Danish heritage is apparent in this minimal yet strong aesthetic, & her design process reflects a great respect for the traditional values of the silversmith. With an emphasis on these skills and a high level of craftsmanship she designs and creates each prototype from her Hackney studio with the aid of patience, nice music and a strong set of eye glasses.
Production is kept in-house not only to ensure that the same exacting standards of quality and design are translated to each finished piece, but also due to the designer’s desire to produce sustainable and responsible fashion jewellery. Despite this emphasis on sustainability & traditional craftsmanship, Henriette Lofstrum jewellery has enjoyed great commercial success. Her statement and show pieces have been worn by the likes of Jessie J, Lady Gaga, Rita Ora, and Kylie Minogue amongst many others, & the brand has always sold in carefully selected stores. Read more
