In november 2005 the young jewellery label 'tinchens' handmade in berlin / brandenburg was founded, by Christine Heindorf-Pape. After 5-year stay abroad in vienna / austria, the designer made herself independently. Her jewellery pieces are manufactured by her own hand and in small series and have individual pieces character. In her collections handmade traditional techniques such as crochet, knitting and weaving are rediscover, which is currently very popular in the world of fashion. By using of wool as processing material the jewellery is gaining in ease and naturalness, and the designer consciously plays with the contrast to real, serious jeweler ware. Christine Heindorf-Pape works in brandenburg on an old farm, and create from the combination of quiet country life and vibrant city berlin new creativity.
