Joaille – Collections 2015/16


Joaille is a young label established by Charlotte Kreuter and Manuel Kern-Gerves. Joaille is about jewellery design and craftsmanship, about passion, precision and love for detail. The two young creatives founded their label in summer of 2015 and get started with their first collection. This collection, consisting of 5 sub-collections and more than 60 pieces, stands out due to its graphic and minimalistic elegance, to the usage of exclusively precious metal (silver and gold) as well as due to its wearability and suitability for daily use. However in every piece the collection foregrounds something special and sophisticated. Because of their complexity pieces and shapes of this collection could have been built as CAD files – but Joaille is consciously creating its pieces by hand. Cold beauty, straight lines and symmetries contradict the human warmth that floats into the collection owing to the willingly chosen craftsmanship. Charlotte Kreuter & Manuel Kern-Gerves: They got to know each other during their time working for the goldsmith and jewellery designer Clemens Leyendecker/ Aurifex in summer 2013 in Koblenz. It didn’t take much time until it was sure that these two were made to collaborate and to start their “own thing”. That is because both are fascinated by beautiful and esthetic shapes, forms, creations, by overwhelming details as well as by approved high fashion and jewellery designers such as Iris van Herpen, Nicoline Liv Anderson and others. And finally because of their outstanding affection in music. Based on this creative friendship two years later the label Joaille was born.
