Bridgat: what fascinates you about the editorial work with jewelry especially?
Petra Bäuerle: developments in the design area, the strong expressiveness of forms, are particularly exciting, of course the “Mini”-works of art which are made portable. The emergence of big trends, for example the hype for charms, is interesting to observe and analyze. In my opinion not the due importance is given to far jewellery – as a cultural asset, as a magnificent asset and as an expressive accessory -. It is a challenge to change that!

JB: there is a moment in the development of a specification, which you particularly look forward?
PB: Yes, this is not the emergence of this issue, as you might suspect, but the start of planning for the next edition. A blank page layout can be filled with ideas, themes and great pictures. I feel that as in the quotation of Hermann Hesse: “And magic inherent in any early”. The constraints on, well, that come from alone …

JB: you select the topics according to what criteria?
PB: Timeliness, trend, season, information disclosure, and much more. It comes again and again to the question, as you can – delight the reader for the topic of jewelry in Word and image.

JB: have a piece of jewelry, where your heart especially depends on and which emotional value exceeds the actual material value?
PB: But of course, as a piece of jewelry has surely every woman. It is a ring that I have received from my far too early deceased mother.
