“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 they're worn on the body, these little sculptures conform perfectly to the contours of the human anatomy.”
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 its 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 because of a well planned and lengthy development process as the basis for every design.
Angela Hübel belongs to a generation of jewellery designers who in the 80s and 90s established themselves in the jewellery market purely through production companies marked by their personalities and designs. Today, her name has become synonymous with unconventional, sculptural ring forms. In addition to numerous publications in journals, magazines and books, Angela Hübel's multiple award-winning design has found a place in various German museums.
The success of a jewelry collection which is as unconventional and intellectually discriminating as this one by Angela Hübel proves that a transformation has indeed occurred on the jewelry 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 experience the act of wearing jewelry as a confrontation with themselves, their personality and their body.
New designs are displayed at the Inhorgenta Munich Fair every year in spring.
