Born in Germany, Antje has been designing and creating works of art for more than 30 years using a variety of media. After moving to the United States she was introduced to making jewelry in 2012. Antje’s custom crafted jewelry displays her heritage as well as American trends using a combination of Japanese and Czech glass beads, stone, wire, leather, pearls, silver, copper and other natural materials to create unique pieces. Every piece she makes is handcrafted using a several different methods including bead stringing, bead stitching, wire wrapping, bead embroidery, and other techniques. As important as the design is the colors and color combinations she puts together to create that one-of-a-kind look for her jewelry. Her work can be found in Regional shows across Southern and Central Alabama as well as in specialty stores in Montgomery, Alabama.
