Designer Anette Wilhelmi. Anette stared as an apprentice in a seamstress shop. The, she studied textile design in Maastrich Holland. After graduation, she opened a silkscreen studio in Bonn, Germany to print her designs and introduce them to the public. Shortly after her first exhibition in Bonn she began to work with felt. She had found the material fascinating since she had been introduced to the concept of textiles as jewelry in Holland. Within a short time she had produced some wonderful designs in bracelets and earrings. This was the beginning of her current collection of contemporary jewelry combining felt, stainless steel, sterling silver and freshwater pearls.
