How can you create something beautiful out of the troubled past of the center of Berlin and by doing so help to shape the future of it? This was one of the questions which have inspired the American jewelry designer Tyler Pesek and musician Daniela Wittenberg to create a small collection of silver jewelry with the name “Schlossholz”.

“Schlossholz” which translates into “Wood from the Palace” is the historic wood from the foundation construction of the old Berlin City Palace: ancient pylons of spruce and pine as well as beams of oak, which had carried the historic building in the center of the German capital for centuries. These wooden pylons were rammed into the soil between 1680 and 1710 and supported the Berlin City Palace in the following centuries.

Today one can wear this lovely old wood with its special history and modern and timeless design as a piece of jewelry: a pendant, which is encased in solid 925 sterling silver, exists in the form of two variants: round (Round Solid 1680) and rectangular (Solid Square 1680).

Production is carried out in a specialized wood processing and jewelry production in Berlin and each piece is hand crafted and unique. From the price of 186 euros a donation of 60 euros directly benefits the reconstruction of the Berlin City Palace and the Humboldtforum (where in the future all of Berlin’s main museum collections of cultural heritage and history will be unified under one roof).

Schlossholz jewelry can be found and purchased in Berlin at the Hotel Ritz Carlton, the “Humboldtbox” at the Schlossplatz near the construction site of the Berlin City Palace, or the Modulor store in Berlin-Kreuzberg. On the internet one can easily take a more thorough look at the jewelry and order it on the website http://www.schlossholz.de or on the official website of the Foundation Berlin City Palace: http://www.berliner-schloss.de.
