Her works could be seen at exhibitions both in Poland and abroad. Artist uses in her jewellery characteristic materials – mainly old toys but also plastic grass or bakery products. The author designs in series, concentrating on one area she tries to exploit the subject matter to the full. This is how series such as: horses, diamonds or paper stories were made. She also strives to keep her works’ functionality despite their avant-garde looks. Her best ideas come to her while using public means of transport. She uses trams when she starts loosing inspiration.
Apart from creating original jewellery, she also designs furniture. Her most recent works will soon be on display in DMY International Design Festival in Berlin.
