Background and a look behind the scenes: The new jewellery collection – interview: part II/V

Interview with Janine Eisenhauer, head of jewellery design at ENERGETIX Bingen.

Over the coming weeks, FROGBLOG will be uploading parts of the entire interview.
So it’ll be worth coming back to take a look!


Janine, let’s look at the Classic category: the pendant 2068 and matching earrings 2142P are particularly outstanding.

J. E.: Yes, we developed a frame to surround the solitaire pendant for this piece in the Solitaire series. The frame puts me a little in mind of a rose tree. The suggestion of thorns on the edge and the tendrils in the centre. It was created by our designer, Robin Ashby, and you could think that the Tudor rose was his inspiration.  The Tudor rose represents England.

Let’s talk about the Basic category: what is characteristic for the jewellery in this easy-to-combine category?

J. E.: The Basic category stands for simple jewellery that also doesn’t have to be expensive.

We have a jewellery set here that we designed specifically to satisfy these requirements. It is small, simple, and, with its sparkling Swarovski crystal, it goes with everything. Here, the ENERGETIX heart shape, which is very typical for the style used in ENERGETIX jewellery, was taken up. The crystal is even set in three very filigree prongs.

The really well done model pictures stand out in the catalogue. Where were the atmospheric photos for the Basic category taken?

J. E.: The photos for the Basic category were shot in the TRIBECA district of New York. The photo with the umbrella was, for example, taken opposite Hugh Jackman’s café, at the “Laughing Man”. That’s where I had the best coffee that I’ve had in a long time.
