The concept of Franziska Rappold’s jewelry design is based upon few elementary forms created by nature: pod, fruitcase, blossom, bud. Modelling and materializing in this concept means to intuitively explore the space of fashioning, led by the desire to update the encryption codes of nature in termsof human artifacts - with pleasure, fantasy, imagination and creative wonder.

The shape of the idea is growing through free modelling and the use of modern goldsmith’s technology into a precious metal skin, which is open for every form and every volume. The structure of the surface of each object is finished in a way that underlines its unmistakable appearance. From the combination with stainless steel or rubber rope a particular contrast of tension between form and line arises.

Regularly Franziska Rappold is taking part at the international fairs “Tendence”, Frankfurt, “Inhorgenta”, Munich and “SOFA”, New York and Chicago. New jewelry is displayed annually during this fairs in spring and autumn.

With her work Franziska Rappold won several awards, recently (2007) the Hessian State Prize for German Arts and Crafts at Tendence Lifestyle, and she established her brand in the community of the younger generation of designers, whose names are identified with sophisticated modern design.
