Prunum Regia necklace is a Latin name for a sweet cherry. Plants, flowers and animals are a great source of inspiration for me, because of their wonderful colours and forms. This necklace is a part of the Orbis Regius collection.
My jewellery shows how I see the real, or even the unreal. The truth is, not to create real found shells, or coral skeletons. Only three-dimensional picture of them. And what is and what could be seems more real, than known visible things. The game played by real and not real takes place in my jewellery message and the wearer’s body.
My first collection, where I’ve worked with nudibranches was Worms:Into the Unknown in 2012.
I love to dive. Into the depth of the oceans, into the colours of nature, into subconscious. Prunum Regia necklace connects the imagination, subconscious and the unknown world.
Inspired by my desire for nature, hidden connections come out in the sun. Wild scenes in the night of the universe – beauty of a discovery. Riding fast on the blue road, ardent movement of a shape . Red shadows follow us, crystallize and grow on a body. An orchestra of galaxies sending signals of colorful tones swinging over the seas, breach the water surface without splash. A taste explosion, fabulous naked miracle of surprise, the true colour of orgiastic blossom. Planet of drops, the horizon is a geyser.
The perfection of nature’s forms and the beauty of the material challenge me,
Sometimes it’s driftwood of an insanely knotted shape,
pieces of coral, petrified sea shell, amber or a sea urchin skeleton.
It’s about unusual combinations: soft and amorphous –
hard and edged –
translucent and matt light bodies.
The gracile and grotesque-looking deep-sea organisms could be also figments.
Nature and phantasy becomes one.
My jewellery objects are materialized imaginations.
It’s not how the things really are. How they could be –
that is the point of aesthetical capability.
