1. How long have you been working on the work bench you currently using? Does it have a story / history?
In 2005 we have made a new workbench because the relocation of our studio. The measures of the bench are the same as a work bench in Rapperswil Switzerland where my internship boss also took his internship. The tubes from the bench are made of concrete and they are touching the heated floor so in winter they radiate a little warmth.
2. Which is your favourite tool, and why?
Paul : The pliers with printed caps so you can bend metal without making any damage.
Carla : Abrasive linen holders from Switzerland ( they call them “smirgeltuchhalter”) . You can finish your jewelry piece with a consistent, very good, tight and thoughtful quality with it.
3. What is the making technique / process you enjoy the most, and why?
Paul: To bend a straight tight strip of gold into a ring in organic form.
Carla : The process of making new models with paper ,copper and many other materials and then translate it into gold.
4. Anything else you want to tell us about your jewellery bench?
We builtg the bench ourselves. We are very proud of it!
