Hendrike is a British, German-born designer & maker in Hertfordshire working with various materials, including precious & non-precious metals and silk. Her current work combines Japanese Kumihimo silk braids with precious metal parts. Hendrike braids the silk cords in her studio, using silk, a Marudai - the Japanese braiding loom - and between 16 to 24 Tama, the bobbins onto which the silk threads are wound. The metal parts in her pieces are textured to add further subtlety and tactility to the piece. Hendrike employs different metal working techniques to accentuate a piece, for example metal folding, Keum-Boo or fusing and is always exploring new techniques.
