Sabine Roemer found her vocation early in life at the age 15, when she created jewellery and sculptures out of precious metal and gemstones. Seven years later she graduated with a scholarship as one of the youngest-ever female Masters Graduates from Germany’s Pforzheim Goldsmith and Watchmaker School. There Sabine mastered a wide range of jewellery-making techniques, including stone cutting, carving, stone setting and design. From there the designer travelled extensively – exhibiting her fine jewellery designs around the world.
In 2004 Sabine settled in London to work for leading British jeweller Stephen Webster. Following this, she created one-of-a kind pieces for high-end jewellery companies like Boodles, DeBeers and Graff. After winning numerous awards for her work Sabine broke out on her own in 2007. Her first projects included custom-made jewellery designs at the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix, followed by creating Trend Vision pieces for Swarovski and collaboration with theNelson Mandela foundation after meeting the former-president with Bill Clinton in South Africa.
During this time Sabine developed her bespoke service, where she creates unique pieces for international clients like Oscar nominee Morgan Freeman, who wore Sabine’s bespoke bangle to the Academy Awards.
Sabine Roemer’s first official collection, Arabian Nights, was launched exclusively at Harrods by Appointment in 2010. Sabine was nominated for the Jewellery Designer of the Year at the UK Jewellery Awards in 2010, and was also named a “Trendsetter” from a professional jewellery magazine.
Charity and social responsibility are close to Sabine’s heart, and her work reflects this. Sabine was commissioned to create the most-valuable Elephants for the Parades in London, which featured a 673ct emerald, and the Singapore one combined with a brooch set with a 3ct diamond.
Furthermore, she also created a unique hornbill structure in sterling silver and gold-plated mask set with 383ct rubies for the Jungle City exhibition in Edinburgh during the Art Frieze Festival.
Sabine’s on-going charitable interests have led her to indigenous communities, where she collaborated with the Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert to create a unique collection. The pieces were sold at Dover Street Market and Browns in London, and can now be found on Couturelab.com.
Sabine started recently her own charity “from you with love” following her personal experience during her trip to Ladakh/Pakistan, where she ended up in the flood disasters in August 2010 . Sabine is also working on her new collection, which will be launched in 2012.
