designer

Hallo I am Heike. Maybe you know me from Saint Tropez. I worked at the Pampellone Beach in the famous Club „La Voile Rouge“ selling my creations. Thanks to Maria Tomaselli. She gave me the possibility to show and sell my jewellery there.
Or you know me from the friendly island of Saint Martin – Sint Maarten from the beautiful Orient Beach.

Heike

Before, I was a graphic-designer and art director in Germany. But my life was missing the sun and the sea. My longing was very strong and I thought about how I can change my life. A big reason was also the bible. Galatians Chapter 5 verse1
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

I did not feel good in an employed position to work for people. I wanted to work on my own.

One day I met Detmar, a goldsmith and I had the idea to go to Saint Tropez and to work there as a jewellery designer. Detmar taught me the techniques and gave me information about the materials and my girlfriend Ingrid Kwapil gave me a lesson in mineral stones.
I started to create and I could not stop. I was like a waterfall with endless ideas and endless power. I was in the flow. My girlfriend Elke de Mol helped me to find a little studio in the old part of Saint Tropez just beside the famous yellow church. She worked hard to get the studio, because it is normaly impossible to get a studio in Saint Tropez. She succeeded.

My dream began. I lived in the South of France under the sun, at the sea in one of the most beautiful places in the world. And for the first time I was independent and free. I could create what I wanted.
And my clients gave me the power to continue.
From Saint TropezĀ  I went to Saint Martin to the next most beautiful place under the sun.
