Goldsmith and sculptor Andreas Eberharter, who lives in Vienna, has already supplied his extravagant pieces of jewelry to stars such as Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Peaches Geldof and Lindsey Lohan. His creations under the label AND_i are partly reminiscent of sculptures. The Eye Patches caused an international furor in 2009 in a fashion show by Thierry Mugler. Metal eye patches by AND_i are also used in the video "Paparazzi" by Lady Gaga and have since become highly desirable cult objects.
Eberharter uses silver and leather for his designs, as well as unusual materials such as aluminum. However, creations by AND_i are not only reserved for the stars: pieces from the "ready-to-wear" collection can be bought from just €40 and are entirely suitable for everyday use for confident personalities.
