Jewelry, as an art form, has the power to create moods and produce reactions. This is the design philosophy that the German jewelry designers and goldsmiths Christiane & Oliver Hampel follow in creating and developing their own unique collection of jewelry.

Although they use precious metals like 18k and 24k gold, as well as sterling silver and precious stones, the design is of much greater importance to Christiane & Oliver than the intrinsic value of the materials that they work with.

Born 1974 in Hanover Germany, Christiane's interest in jewelry design began at a young age and it was quickly becoming apparent that this adolescent pastime was much more than that, as Christiane's talents far exceeded her years. In 1996, Christiane received her degree as a goldsmith with honors and went on winning a nationwide jewelry design contest. Christiane also studied jewelry design and received her degree in 2001.

Christiane's innate sense of style and boundless creativity coupled with her love of nature is reflected in her jewelry. For the last 16 years Christiane has enchanted audiences in Germany and Spain, creating a loyal following of collectors and admirers of her jewelry.

In May 2007 Christiane successfully showed her unique jewelry in the United States for the first time. The immense interest in her jewelry demanded the opening of a studio in the United States. In January of 2008 Christiane opened her first studio in Naples Florida.

Why Exchanging links

I have found that there is no point in having a lovely exhibition if nobody can find it. If a website is a rewarding experience and provides links to useful and interesting content, visitors will keep coming back for more. Don’t worry about links pointing away from your site. If you never get many visitors there in the first place, it isn’t going to be an issue anyway.

Gaining top search engine listings can be difficult, but by seeking topic-related links pointing to your site, you can dramatically increase the number of visitors you receive.

You’ll probably find that by acquiring these links, the number of visitors that access your site via search engine listings will also improve. Why is this? Search engines position your site in their search results according to various complicated factors. One influencing factor is link popularity” basically, they are assessing the importance of your site by how many other sites link to it.
