Claudia Steiner’s philosophy is largely determined by her statement that jewellery is like miniature sculptures that provide information about their wearers. Her inspiration for the “Amber in Contemporary Jewellery” exhibition is the historical Amber Road, which began in Estonia, crossed through Latvia, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Austria and ended in Italy.

“Each of these areas has its own form, determined by boundaries,” says Steiner, who uses precisely this characteristic as a basis for the content and form for her collection of Baltic amber jewellery. The uniqueness of each area along the Amber Road is highlighted in warm, honey-like tones in her jewellery. But she is also able to find unifying elements that act as symbols for this journey from the Baltic Sea to Southern Europe.
Steiner studied at the Wiener Goldschmiede Akademie in 2003-2004. Since 2005 she has participated in a variety of jewellery exhibitions throughout Europe.
