Valérie Hangel: Textile Jeweller
As a child, Valérie dreamt of becoming a jewellery designer. She studied at the Geneva School of Applied Arts then specialised in haute couture design. While the world of fashion was her main passion for a number of years, it did not provide her with enough forms of expression to be truly happy. Then she met Peter Kammermann who would become her partner in life and who shared with her his love of textiles. She hit upon the idea of integrating fabrics into jewellery design, a new dimension, which afforded her the space to finally give her creativity free rein.
