Both jewellery and sculpture, Juliane Brandes’ work has a spirited, naturalistic quality but always with a twist. The inventive wit of the surreal, small creatures and objects of much of her earlier work have now metamorphosed into something at once more earthy and more other-worldly.
Juliane Brandes was born in Hamburg in Germany in 1962. After completing her goldsmiths’ training, she studied jewellery at Hochschule Pforzheim and has taught at the city’s Berufskolleg für Design, Schmuck und Gerät since 1991. Her work is widely exhibited and can been seen in the collections of Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim and the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt, as well as the Marzee Collection.
