Ines Schwotzer's WIred Jewelry

 - Nov 20, 2008   Updated: Jul 12 2011
Ines Schwotzer is a freelance designer in Germany. She creates her jewelry and accessories from the most basic of materials; in the case of the pieces here, they're made of wire. By using techniques associated with textiles: weaving and braiding, Schwotzer makes works worthy of interest from Chanel. Many of her pieces are done in stainless steel, but she also works with more traditional metals from time to time.

Implications - While many consumers in today's society push companies to produce modern and hi-tech products, there is also a demand for items that embody simplicity. Businesses that combine basic, everyday items to create something unique and beautiful will appeal to a large audience in today's market.
