Welcome to Oliver Jewelry online. I am Oliver Hampel (Schnoor), a contemporary jewelry artist born in Hamburg Germany that uses traditional metalsmithing techniques as well as modern technologies to create edgy, one of a kind designs. My designs have a distinct contemporary look and extraordinary comfortable feel. I use primarily silver in my works, but also incorporate contrast in my pieces by mixing metals and incorporating unique precious gemstones. Shapes and textures I find in nature are a constant source of inspiration for my designs.
EXPRESS your UNIQUE self with jewelry that has PERSONALITY. My slogan sums up my design philosophy. Jewelry is a very personal way to express oneself. I am extremely humbled when a person decides to express their uniqueness by wearing my jewelry. My goal is to make the wearer feel confident, bold, empowered but also attractive, beautiful and sensual. Several of my customers even signalize their love to one another with wedding or partner bands.
I live in sunny Naples, Florida with my wife Christiane, who is the person that got me started designing and making jewelry. Southwest Florida is a beautiful place to live with access to some of the top beaches in the world. All the jewelry is designed and created in our studio.
Art shows are a great way for me to meet new customers and create a connection with each person that buys my work. You will only find my work for sale on art shows us-wide. From California to Florida, Arizona and Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and Pennsylvania I travel and show my work at some of the best rated art and craft shows.
If you have not had a chance to experience my collection of unique handmade jewelry at the many art festivals that I am attending throughout the year, I invite you to take a virtual tour and hopefully you will enjoy my jewelry as much as I love creating it.
