About the Artist

Natascha Frechen was born in Jülich (Germany) in 1990. Following her vocational training as a goldsmith and years of work experience as a  goldsmith specializing in high jewellery, Natascha Frechen decided to take a new step and move into an artistic field.

In 2019, she completed her studies and was awarded the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Gemstones and Jewellery at the Trier University of Applied Sciences, Idar-Oberstein Campus.

In March 2020, Natascha Frechen began to study for her Master of Fine Arts in Gemstones and Jewellery, again at the Trier University of Applied Sciences, Idar-Oberstein Campus and will graduate in 2022.

For her work with stone, she received the Rhineland-Palatinate award to promote arts and crafts in 2019 and was finalist in the Friedrich Becker Prize in 2020.
