ABOUT FELIX BRESLER
“Gold is like the sun as silver is the moon… I prefer to work at daytime!” Felix Bresler.
Handcrafted fine jewelry art by Felix Bresler. Danish born in 1963. In the 1980s, trained as a goldsmith in Copenhagen, attended stone setter studies at goldsmith academy Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau in Germany, travelled to Australia and worked as a jeweler for three years, and upon return to Denmark, he worked at the main studio of Georg Jensen as well as with Arje Griegst.
During the past 20 years, Felix has worked as an independent jewelry designer with a studio located in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark.
As an artist, Felix’ preference is to draw inspiration from nature and fantastic fiction. Mythology, H.C. Andersen, and the organic beauty found in nature are all important parts of Felix’ artistic world. This inspiration stems from a deep-rooted fascination of natural science and the beauty that lies in the cycles of nature.
As a jewelry artist and stone setter, Felix works in-house and is the sole creator of all pieces. He works only with precious materials – 18 karat gold and high quality pearls and gemstones – diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds and black opals to mention some. Craftsmanship is very important to him and something he seeks to protect. Felix applies some of the oldest goldsmith skills, which are a rare sight today. All pieces are modeled by hand directly in the liquid gold, little by little – only possible in in 18 karat gold or higher karatage – and thus, the material leads the way. “No mistakes occur in this process, as beauty is created from every imperfection” Felix Bresler.
Felix has always shown great passion for gemstones and has collected all his life. He has endless knowledge – and an endless collection – of jewels.
His life’s journey has taken him around the world, but Australia, especially, has a significant place in his heart. Living here for many years and today visiting as often as possible, Felix has both mined sapphires and opals and crafted as well as exhibited jewelry and sculptures in the country. With his third education as a Mineralogical Conservationist from 1994, he has gained a greater understanding, fascination and experience of nature through his travels, studies and art.
