Birgitt Hellemann
Fun, Funky, Flashy
Originally from Hamburg, Germany, Birgitt Hellemann will be displaying her candy-colored necklaces, bracelets and earrings. She creates her designs by fusing layers of glass in a kiln that reaches temperatures of 1500 degrees Fahrenheit. Some of Birgitt's jewelry is made with dichroic glass, which is coated in layers of metal-oxides that shimmer and change when heated. Hand cut and assembled by Birgitt, these jewels are hard to put down!
