Edith Schneider

" I am fascinated by reducing colors and shapes to a minimum. My work is puristic, simple, minimalistic. I like the idea of having only one color, one metal or one shape to emphasize --this 'red', that 'silver' or those 'lentils'. I am inspired by contemporary European as well as Japanese design, both traditions sharing the idea of minimalism."

Edith Schneider works with the highest level of craftsmanship to create a crisp, clean look, which emphasizes the minimalist approach of her work. Each piece is timeless, classic and can be work forever.

Precision + patience + passion = chainmaking. Edith Schneider loves the meditation of repetitive movements, the precise craftsmanship that is involved to make chains, and the creativity that is necessary to invent her own patterns. Each chain consists of 400 to 700 rings, depending on the pattern, and Schneider makes each of those rings and connects them into different patterns.

Schneider achieved a Master of Art degree from the Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich, Germany where she studied Art Pedagogy, Art History and Anthropology with the emphasize in metalsmithing and painting. After moving to the US, the artist continued to study jewelry-making at the Palo Alto Art Center, the Mendocino Art Center and the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco.
