Angela Hübel

Artist's statement:

" My intention is to create jewelry which is simultaneously contemporary and timeless. I begin with basic geometric forms which I develop into small independent sculptures.

When a piece of mine is worn on the finger this little sculpture will conform perfectly to the natural contours of the human anatomy. Of all the parts of the human body which can be ornamented, the hand is the one that's most frequently in motion - so the ring is the most lively piece of jewelry - and often occupies the center of attention ".

" Spotlight " on the the artist ...

Very few jewellers deal as intensely and exclusively with the ring theme as Angela Hübel does. She has changed this theme into a sophisticated collection that, in all it's variety, can be traced back to a common denominator: she considers rings as independent sculptures with an exclusive power of expression; the appearance changes when placed on the finger, accentuating and highlighting the hand; it becomes a natural part of the body. This is achieved due to a well planned and lengthy developmental process as the basis for her stunning designs.

Angela Hübel belongs to a generation of jewellery designers who in the Eighties and Nineties established themselves in the jewellery market purely through production companies clearly marked by their personalities and designs.

Today this great artist's name has become synonymous with unconventional, sculptural ring forms. In addition to numerous publications in journals, magazines and books, Angela's multiple award-winning design has found a place in a number of German museums.

The success of a jewellery collection which is as unconventional and intellectually discriminating as this one by Angela Hübel only proves, that a definite transformation has indeed occured on the jewellery market: Many women no longer identify themselves with design that are oriented according to whatever is superficially 'fashionable', shallowly decorative or of overt material value. Instead, they prefer to experience the act of wearing jewelery as a personal confrontation with themselves, their personality and their body.
