Every process begins with thorough research. I like to build a whole story as the basis for the collection. Once I have the story, I start sketching in two and three dimensions. These sketches are then translated into three-dimensional objects. Sometimes with my hands in soft wax, sometimes on the computer with a CAD program. Once I have finished all the wax models, these models go to the foundry to be cast using the lost wax process.
Once the objects are cast in metal, they come back to the studio for assembly, soldering and polishing.
Made To Order
Each piece is made to order and custom-made. This means no unnecessary inventory is created in advance. This saves resources and ensures that you receive a piece tailored to your measurements and wishes.
Each piece is (partly) handmade. During my design studies, I learned the techniques of jewelry making and am adding my own touch to the long tradition of jewelry making.
The jewelry that can be ordered is cast from sterling silver - which always consists of 50% new material and 50% "old" material - which saves raw material and at the same time ensures good casting quality. The gold plating you can choose is made with 100% recycled gold.
As you can see above, each piece goes through the process of wax modeling, lost wax casting and finishing. Both wax modeling and post-processing are done in-house here in Berlin, Germany. The casting takes place at a specialist company in Idar-Oberstein, Germany.
All shipping between the foundry and the studio in Berlin is carried out as compressed as possible and exclusively in recycled shipping material.
All customer shipments are sent in the characteristic Carolin Dieler packaging and carried out by DHL - always with a “go green” CO2 compensation.
