Doris Berner’s work is misleading: the delicate fabric pods are not as fragile as they look. A special process ensures that textile becomes a strong jewellery material.

Doris Berner, a Swiss-born designer, is renowned for her groundbreaking creations using silk and modern fabrics, often incorporating stones or glass for added intrigue. Her latest collection, “Lucy,” epitomizes lightweight design, featuring pieces like a necklace weighing less than an ounce, focusing on pure spatial form and shifting colors. Inspired by the Japanese Shibori technique, Berner’s advanced methods have carved a unique niche in jewelry design. Her work has gained international recognition, cementing her position as a leading innovator in the field.

Golden shimmering this necklace radiates a special elegance. The lightness in relation to the sensual volume is surprising and gives the necklace a majestic charm. Gently shining like moonstone in a milky tone, the mellow shapes beguile and nestle around the neck.

With its opulent volume, the necklace is despite its lightness one of the largest among my designs.
