Dear Hampel Design Community,

Another eventful month went by and we have many exciting news to share with you. Hampel Design was featured in an article written by Amy Sowder from The News-Press, we also won an award of distinction at the 33rd Naples National Art Festival.

Featured Jewelry Design

We are constantly coming up with new design ideas and translate these ideas in contemporary pieces of wearable art. This month we like to present one of our favorite earring designs - the Saturn Earrings. Our Saturn Earrings are handmade from sterling silver and 22kt gold. These skillfully crafted sterling silver dangle earrings are light weight, elegant, beautiful and very comfortable to wear. The Saturn Earrings have a unique stardust textured matte finish which gives them the unmistakable Hampel Design look. The dimension of the outer sterling silver disc is 27mm. The length of the Saturn Earrings when worn is 37mm.

Amy Sowder from The News-Press worked on an article that was featured in Coastal Life. The article covered a subject matter that effects every artist that shows and sells their work on art shows. Authentic Art was the title of the article and it talked about the infiltration of manufactured work called buy-sell on art shows and how it effects artist that truly create everything by hand. Amy interviewed us to learn from our expertise and experience. You can find the entire article here.
