Claudia Endler is passionate about jewelry, art, architecture, design, and self-expression. “Ever since I was little you could not drag me away from jewelry store windows.” So, after a successful career as a designer representative in the fashion industry, Claudia’s passions and talents collided, culminating in the formation of Claudia Endler Designs: one of Los Angeles’ leading contemporary jewelry design enterprises.
By combining elements from graphic design, art, and architecture, the essence of Claudia’s jewelry designs is to illuminate the unique qualities that define each person, individually. Claudia’s designs offer distinctive alternatives to the traditional matrimonial fare. “Jewelry is body language. I see it as a way to discover, express, and reveal. I use the power of proportion, attention to detail, and the omission of the non-essential elements to bring each piece to its minimum and purest form,” says Claudia.
“Timeless and infinitely modern jewelry” is how Claudia describes the style of her work, creating mostly custom pieces aimed at revealing subtle aspects of an individual’s taste, personality, and desires. When designed to such personal specifications, it shows the wearer’s confidence, and that, she says, “is truly sexy.”
Claudia was awarded the 2010 Women Jewelry Association Shining Star Award and in 2009 the Phyllis Morris Award in Design. Her designs have received critical acclaim, including other prestigious design awards and nominations. Additionally, she has been featured on My Fox L.A.’s Jewelry Designer Hot List and Colored Stone magazine’s Favorite Designer. Although born in Germany, Claudia grew up in Los Angeles where she has her studio. Her designs occupy the private collections of some of L.A.’s top cultural leaders, including museum curators, architects, gallery directors, artists, and other jewelry designers.
