Jola Gazda from hundreds meters of silver wire weaves ethereal, folk-inspired shapes. The concept of her jewellery is based on the idea of combining folk handicraft technique with goldsmithery. Every single element is hand-made, woven out of dozens, sometimes even hundreds of meters of silver wire. The elements are later finally set in silver or brass. In such a way exceptional, delicate forms are created. Although they are stylized as folk pieces they work perfectly in the urban crowd.

Dorota Michalska loves jewellery. Making jewellery is  a cure for her soul. Her eclectic collections include different materials, but she prefers silver. She connects it gladly with colourful ceramics – it reflects her interests with pottery. She seeks for new materials, techniques and means of expression. She is also interested in felting is her domain. Dorota is inspired by nature, particularly by flora, with it’s  shape and colour richness. She uses zircons, natural cut stones and pearls in her works.

My projects are created gradually: first of all simple sketches, then first experiments in workshop. The prototype is often modified several times, before it gets expected form. I like this phase the most. The work gives me the strength, joy and feeling of self-creativity. It motivates me to constant seeking of new materials, forms and to technique improvement.

 

 

Weronika Bachan is the author of bold, precise constructions in a climate of high-tech. She studied geology at the Warsaw University, where she discovered the magic of gemstones. During studies in Geneva she started designing jewellery. She finds inspirations in other cultures visiting exotic countries. Original shapes are characteristic for her works. Thanks to unique beauty of each stone she creates jewellery with an inimitable character.

Creating jewellery is my passion, my way of life. During last few years, I was on continues journey through several continents, different countries, various cultures. I was fortunate to see so much, so many different places. Each of these places has their own magic and mystery to which I relate creating my jewellery.
