Spanish designer Helena Rohner grew up in the Canary Islands and studied at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, finishing her training in 1991. Today, she is one Spain’s best known jewellery designers.
After her formative years in Spain, she moved to Florence to begin her design career, and moved to London in 1987. This was at the behest of another Georg Jensen jewellery designer, Jacqueline Rabun. Rohner ended up returning to her Iberian roots and is now based in el capital, Madrid.
Though she is best known as a jewellery designer, Rohner’s creative talents also extend into fashion, products for the home, and lighting. The HELENA tea service was her first collaboration with Georg Jensen.
Silver is the element common to Helena Rohner's jewels. She combines silver with fine woods, semi-precious stones, porcelain, Murano glass and braiding. There is an organic use of materials and composition that characterises all of her work.
Among her peers, Rohner is considered a force. Her pieces are strong, statement-oriented, and, above all, beautiful. The Georg Jensen spirit of innovation is at the heart of all that she creates.
