In 2013, having just graduated in fashion design from the Studio Berçot in Paris, Sibylle von Münster went to join her father’s architecture firm in Switzerland. Here, at the heart of the creative process, she was initiated into the vocabulary of architecture and design. Very soon she nurtured a desire to launch her brand of jewelry that would be designed as architectural miniatures. Her eponymous brand was born in early 2016. Her jewelry designs are a blend of graphic forms and pure lines, in gold and gemstones. They are handmade in Italy, in the town of Valenza, nicknamed the “city of gold”. Here, in the most prestigious jewelry houses, the designs are crafted by craftsmen and women whose guaranteed expertise is passed down from generation to generation. Each piece starts with a technical and artistic design which prefigures the jewel in volume and color, using the “gouaché” technique as per the tradition.
