Elysia brooch was made as a part of the collection Unknown Waters . Together with other jewellery pieces that I’ve made of dyed fish scales. The inspiration of water, colors, underwater animals and the unknown is here present in the form and the character of the brooch. Dyed and shiny lacquered fish scales contrast with the button like pearl set in gold 585, one garnet cabochon and faceted blue glass stone set in silver 925. The bottom of the brooch is made of alpaca with patina, signed and marked with the creation year.
Unknown Waters – Through imagination the undiscovered world of inward beings is brought to daily life till a piece of jewelry is created. The question is not “Where does my inspiration come from?” But “Where does it end?”. Where it has no limits and no rules, it is inexhaustible. With myriads of sources, in all shapes and colors, it develops itself. Everything is possible, nothing is true! Elysia brooch is searching for a unique species living in the depths of the sea. The deeper the unknown, the more intoxicating the world is. The inspiration’s floating in weightless state, it never stands still. By movements of the water pulled back and forth – a solid bottom does not exist. An unsatisfied thirst for knowledge, which drives to work, creates unique pieces that tell a story. The devotion to nature and jewelry rewarded with an open field of imagination, inspiration that’s wearable, and moreover an absolute revelation of one’s own feeling.
