The sculptural simplicity of line inherent in Helena Rohner’s jewellery is a reflection of her bond with the landscape of her native Canaries – it is as if one is wearing a glimpse of sunlight or a soft, almost carnal, mineral that is shaped not by a human hand, but by nature’s elements.
Helena’s collections, both timeless and contemporary, show a sensual attention to harmony and a love of colour and diverse materials – she uses not only gold and silver, but porcelain, stone, textile, and wood.
Born into a Spanish-Swiss family, Helena’s home was filled with weaving and puppet-making. She discovered her calling at evening jewellery-making courses that ran parallel to her academic, education in London, via Geneva and Florence.
She extends her creativity to ceramics, wood, lamps and carpets. She has designed pieces for Georg Jensen, Kahler, Bodum and Munio – among her latest projects is a collaborative design for DAC RUGS. In 2015, Helena was awarded the prestigious Fine Arts Gold Medal for her work.
