Theresa Brar is an autodidact when it comes to everything jewellery. But still she does it – and she does it good!
Theresa studied textile technology and –management at Reutlingen university in Germany. But soon after her studies, she was drawn to the big city of Berlin to work for the fashion label adddress as a fashion director. During this time Theresa also travelled through India, where she discovered her passion for jewellery and found inspriration. This way Theresa began to teach herself how to create jewellery although she doesn’t even wear much jewellery herself. Soon she had her first real collection put together which was presented to the press and can also be seen on the pictures here.
Her main focus is on holding on to using material with different characteristics and surface feels. For her first collection, she mainly used chunky rope and thin gold chains. For the Summer special collection, Theresa used acrylic glass und leather strings. Surely, Theresa has a surprise planned for the FW11 collection.
And maybe one day she will stop working for adddress and open up her own little store.
