Lena Wunderlich's approach to contemporary jewelry lies in the poetic language of simplicity. She aims to develop new insights into contemporary and genderless elegance. Lines are drawn and manifest in contrasting materials, such as metal and silicone that create a relationship between the object and wearer - layered with subtlety, integrated into modern-day.

Lena Wunderlich is an artist and designer from Germany. She received her Master of Fine Arts in Jewelry and Metalsmithing in 2016 from the Rhode Island School of Design and her Bachelors degree in Integrated Design in 2014 from the Köln International School of Design. She was also trained as a goldsmith, where she passed with distinction and was named the best goldsmith in the Chamber of Handicraft of East Westphalia and second-best at the federal state level of North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany.
