The Viennese designer Susanne Gstettner creates delicate, radiant pieces of jewelry in cooperation with women in Togo, Africa. At Chic Ethic on Tummelplatz in Graz, Hélène and Andreas Reiter-Viollet make these beautiful pieces available to their customers. For the jewelry, colored glass beads from the renowned Gablonzer glass works in the Czech Republic are processed. On site in Togo, the women hand-crochet the glass beads into ribbons – an elaborate and time-consuming skill that often involves groups working together outdoors. The final production step takes place in the jewelry atelier in Vienna.
