Uli Rapp (1974) received her Masters degree in jewelry design at the prestigious Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.
Fascinated by the Elizabethan splendour in dress decoration she translates it into wearable contemporary jewelry. Her collections have developed rapidly in a sophisticated style and use of smart materials – she invented a technique to apply medical plastic between textile. Uli’s necklaces, brooches and earrings interpret a love for antique gemstones and pearls contrasting with chunky chains. All pieces are skilfully handmade in screen print on light weight soft materials. The combination of a contemporary artist’s tools with the hint of past splendour makes for tintillating jewelry: conversation pieces for bold wearers like famous Architect Zaha Hadid and Designer Nathalie Rykiel.
Uliʼs pieces are in permanent collections of international museums and private collectors. They are sold at shows and galleries in Paris, Miami and Dubai. They are produced in Amsterdam by hand with love by Uli & the team.
