Burkhard and Monika Oly, married since 1960, started working as self-employed jewellery-designers after graduating from the Staatliche Zeichenakademie Hanau in 1963.
Since 1964 they took part in exhibitions in Berlin, Hamburg, Lima, Munich, Osaka, Prague and Sidney, setting up their studio ‘Galerie Oly’ in 1971 in Gelnhausen, some 30 km east of Frankfurt/M.

Characteristic for their jewellery designs is a sculptural quality due to combining a strictly abstract outline with a lively, irregular texturing and finishing of the pieces’ surface.
