We are Astonish, an international collective at the moment consisting of five female makers. We met in the misty and magical valley of Idar-Oberstein. Since its foundation Astonish has been a platform for artists from different backgrounds – from around ten different countries – but with the same language: jewelry.
What is driving us to expose and spread our ideas about jewelry and adornment is our passion for making. We got invited to discuss about the tension between the natural and synthetic and this, evidently, resulted in us making. This topic is so malleable, it allowed us to imprint our essence and bring about more questions throughout the creative process as well as within the objects made. The long conversations resulted in a new online exhibition. We hope you enjoy The Right One!
And let’s get Astonished!
