Increased popularity as people wonder if you traveled from the past in your DeLoreon to the party. You will finally get that raise you have been after when you strike up a conversation with your boss who has great memories of his first kiss by the light of a Space Invaders game at his local arcade in 1981.
About the designer
Kai Zaunick, originally from Germany, was in search for a counter balance for his dayjob as a programmer … something that would drag him away from the world of code lines and numbers and allow him to create something real outside a computer screen.
The solution: Jewelry! The idea of working with precious metals, transforming them with his own hands into design objects, sounded interesting enough to make him start exploring this ancient craft. Learning from the best master jewelers, Kai got to know all the steps involved in jewelry making. Three years ago he opened his studio and began designing his first collection. After a year of hard work his jewelry appeared in various national fashion magazines. Rapidly the demand grew and the studio had to be expanded.
Kai’s collections are diverse, representing an authentic approach to todays fashion and reinterpreting classic themes, but common characteristics running through all his work are quality, perfection and attention to detail.
