In 2014, Berlin-born Yvonne Schippke began creating jewelry. This soon developed into a whole collection. It seemed a shame to keep making this jewelry purely as a hobby, so she founded the designer label MARY&YVES.
Yvonne Schippke lost her heart to jewelry. Her studies of gold working techniques have inspired her to create unique jewelry pieces. After working in the theatre, completing studies of fashion design at the Lette-Verein in Berlin and a year abroad in Italy, Yvonne has for the last years worked as a freelance editor and stylist for a variety of lifestyle magazines. Throughout it all she has never lost sight of her passion for craftwork. At the end of 2013, fortune led Yvonne Schippke to the study of gold working. It was love at first sight.
The creations of MARY&YVES are particularly influenced by flora and fauna, foreign cultures and distant lands, rock ‘n’ roll, Native Americans, art déco, the power of symbols, the 70s, vintage fashion markets, freedom – and by love. All parts are handmade in Berlin, making each piece of jewelry unique.
