IJL Inspired: Interview with KickStart Winner, Bine Roth

IJL Inspired: Interview with KickStart Winner, Bine Roth

Bine Roth’s jewellery plays with our senses with the ultimate focus on movement and wearability. Her designs, characterised by a combination of strong shapes and a serene lightness of movable chains which allow the designs to dance on the body, wowed the KickStart Judges!

We caught up with KickStart winner @binerothjewellery to discuss her beautiful work, inspirations and what you can expect to see from the brand at #IJL2019.

What made you want to apply to be a KickStarter at IJL 2019?

I am originally from Germany and have already started my business there before coming here. I have participated at ‘Brand New’ at Inhorgenta 2019 in Munich this spring. Having met Lindsey Straughton from NAJ at my stand, convinced me to take up this opportunity.

What are you most looking forward to during your KickStart experience?

KickStart will help me to get my business up to the next level. I am very excited to be part of the programme to meet international buyers, galleries, manufacturers as well as fellow designers.

Tell us about where you get your inspiration from?

Most of my initial designs are inspired by the curiosity of mankind and our relationship with our body and space. I have an immense passion for architecture. However, I also feel most of my friends are creatives, too. They are an inspiration to my work as well. I am constantly uplifted by their energy.

Tell us a little about the work you will be bringing to IJL 2019?

A few years ago, I have started a new collection during my residency at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham. Especially for IJL 2019, I have developed this collection further and started working on an extended pave collection. It is the upmost joy to be working on new designs. I am super excited to be showing this collection.

When did you first discover your love of jewellery?

I applied for an internship when I was in 10th grade. However, the jeweller in the town I grew up did not have any capacities to take on any interns. A couple of years later, I got accepted to do an internship in Switzerland which was super intense but it definitely set the starting point of my career.

Who would you love to see wearing your jewellery?

Paula Antonelli, Director of R&D at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York City

If you had to summarise your brand in a couple of words, what would you use?

Body-centric, architectural, minimal, dynamic
