About gudbling

Sales 4,582
On Etsy since 2011

Welcome

Welcome, my name is Christine.

Gudbling was born in 2011 more or less by accident. I came to Berlin in 2010 to start my own business as a graphic designer and tried my hand at all kinds of products like calendars, postcards and also home accessories.

Half a year later, a fashion designer friend of mine offered to share her studio with me and help her sell in her store in exchange.
In the workshop in the back of the store, there were always plenty of fabric scraps that were too small to make clothes out of. But the colorful cords were also much too good to throw away and since textile jewelry was trending in 2011, the first Gudbling jewelry pieces were created.

My DaWanda store (R.I.P) was quickly created and very soon it became clear that my future lay in jewelry and not in graphic design.

One Woman Business

More than ten years later, the joy of designing jewelry has not left me. The textile elements have become less in recent years and more brass and natural stones have crept into my designs.

As a one-woman business, Gudbling is not a strategic operation, but personal creative expression and sharing the joy of adorning oneself. All of this is a process, a matter of trends and demand, but also a part of my own story.

To this day, I make all pieces by hand in my Berlin studio. Every handwritten postcard that reaches you with your order is written by me. I answer your mails and requests myself and I want it to stay that way. I have never been interested in exponential growth, but have created a work according to my needs and I am proud of it.

Why jewelry?

What I particularly appreciate about jewelry is its inclusivity. Everyone can wear necklaces. Ear holes come in many sizes, but they are self-selected and don't follow an industry norm. And bracelets I have always offered as made to order. That means I make tjhem directly to a specified wrist circumference.

Some may dismiss jewelry as superficial, but it is a faithful companion. Whether in everyday life, or on festive occasions. As a reminder of loved ones, or as an expression of friendship and recognition. Wearing jewelry was and is deeply human.
