Verena Trautwein-Maranger's Profile

About

I was born in the northern German town of Hannover. From my early childhood, I was visually inspired by color and form. Already as a teenager, I discovered my passion for jewelry and started to collect beads and learn how to make beaded jewelry. My international family background, prolific travels (Europe, Asia, Africa, North America) as well as long-lasting stays in the Republic of Ireland, France, Spain, the U.S. and, most recently, Canada, have formed my multicultural approach in my jewelry-making.

I live in Munich (Germany) and have a workshop at home where I give jewelry consultations and also make custom-made jewelry. In addition to several private showings in Toronto, Ottawa, Munich and Hannover, I have participated in several public events and show my work in galleries.

You can choose from a vast number of designs and can be sure that each hand-crafted piece is one-of-a-kind. This is ensured both by the individualistic design and fine materials of each piece. I like to “combine different worlds” in one piece of jewelry in order to give it a special, personal and unique energy. Also, materials are mixed: glass with plastic and sea shells, metal with pearls and semi-precious stones, resin with wood and seeds... to create tension, energy and, yes, fun!
As every individual is unique, I want to make you feel special, have fun, play with new shapes, colors and materials and maybe discover new sides of your own personality.

I use high-quality beads, findings and stringing material (Soft Flex®, Beadalon®) in my creations. The lampworked glass beads, Raku and clay beads are hand-made by myself or different artists from all over the world. I also support charitable projects buying beads which are made for example by local artisans in Kenya, Nepal or Tibet.
