It has been a while, but we are delighted to bring you the stories behind our incredible designer-makers.
Today we bring you Gaby Gassner who is the creator and maker behind statement jewellery using various bead weaving techniques.
What inspired you to became a maker?
Other makers & designers and artists. And figuring out that office life wasn’t for me.
Please describe the designing and making process.
It starts with some sketchy doodles of how an idea could work, followed by playing around with various combinations and different materials. My approach is very hands-on, making small tweaks can change the overall look, constantly evaluating if something works or not and starting all over again if something doesn’t work. You know when something is finished when it feels right.
After a long day designing and making, what do you do to switch off and relax?
I like to take the odd afternoon off and hook up with friends to see an exhibition, explore a new place or just have a chin wag over a cuppa.
