The brand was founded in 2000 by a contemporary jewelry designer German Kabirski. It quickly attracted attention, mainly from people who don't like traditional jewelry and art critics. From the beginning, German Kabirski was all about being different. Our designer experimented with unconventional materials, invented new jewelry techniques, and ignored the thousands-year jewelry tradition to create his own authentic style. He combined diamonds with pebbles, precious metals with fur and feathers, and set stones in a way nobody thought possible.
German Kabirski Inc. is a member of the leading US jewelry association, Jewelers of America.
Real artists shouldn't repeat - nor others, neither themselves - says German Kabirski. His work is a constant search for something new - new textures, new materials, and new ways to design. He keeps experimenting and inventing every day, and the joy of the process seems to keep him going.
Full disclosure: actually, some of our pieces are not jewelry. They are living creatures belonging to a scarce extraterrestrial family. They originated at the center of the Earth, where gemstones and metals melt together to form these odd little species we find so fascinating. Spat out on the planet's surface through volcanoes and earthquakes, they longed for high temperatures and intensity of the underworld until they encountered it all in a simple human touch. Since then, they have disguised themselves as designer accessories to befriend people and to become their companions, therapist, and alter egos.
I mix organic forms and straight conflicting lines, using different textures for coating silver to resemble the textures I see in the ore, in the wild stones’ natural habitat. I want my art to remind people of their innately beautiful and conflicted nature. I want to create a sense of connection to everything, seeing awe and miracle in inanimate objects. I love to create dramatic, theatrical statement pieces to remind us of our boldness and our courage to be different.
I’d had a very difficult time, being on the border between life and death due to serious illness and the need to transplant an organ. I planned my own funeral. I felt very isolated during the darkest days of that period in my life, but continued to work. There was a cockroach that desired never to leave my working table and he gave me company. Strangely, he inspired the hope in me that I would live and prosper. Cockroaches are the most indestructible creatures on Earth. Ever since then, I have deemed the cockroach and his qualities my true talisman
