Biography:

Ingo Henn's designs combine precision-cut gemstones with meticulous German training in goldsmithing and design, and very high quality English techniques such as enamelling and hand-engraving. The result is unusual pieces that are bold, colourful and modern and at the same time elegant, timeless and with a strong emphasis on detail. Ingo's designs are clean and simple and are intended to show off the detail of the craftmanship and the different techniques, including fine enamel work in shades of transparent colours that highlight intricate hand-engraved patterns.

According to Ingo: "An important aspect of the design is to balance all the components: gemstones, engraving and enamelling, so that the combination is beautiful."

Ingo draws some of his design inspiration from the gemstones, which are always the centrepiece of his work. he starts by choosing the gemstone and creates the design around it. The stone is used as a guideline for the enamel colour and the style of engraving.
