Artist;s Statement

NATURAL BEAUTY INSPIRES ME...

Humanity, motion and emotion, and nature, all inspire me with their wild beauty and raw grace. Landscapes of deep silences, rough textures fragmented hoarse and soft sounds, are the backdrop to my thinking, and become transmuted into the distinctive forms of my jewellery.My jewellery opens a door into another world, full of silence and sounds from nature. It draws nature into your life. Unrefined, but at the same time delicate pieces become your story, with nostalgic notes of an untouched world.Wild landscape raw natural beauty, transmuted into the uniqueness of each piece - necklaces, bracelets, earrings or rings every single one is different; no two are alike.

ABOUT ME 

I always knew I would be an artist even when I was little and didn't really know what art was. Although I was brought up in a large town in Lithuania, as a child we often went to the woods and lakes, where the textures and shapes of stones, moss, wood, enchanted me. I always took something back home with me like a piece of tree bark, or moss, a stone or a pine cone to remind me of that special moment. The hardest thing was to find my art speciality, as I was into everything - painting, photography, calligraphy, interior design etc. until I found that perfect fit - jewellery as an art form. Then I knew I would be a jewellery artist, working with precious metals. 

TECHNIQUES

Finishing on an oxidised surface makes my work unique. I create a glossy,shiny or smoky finish: it produces pleasing contrasts. My work is detailed – I like the microscopic view rather than the panoramic. Although smooth and beautifully finished, the pieces speak of the natural textures wrought by earth and fire, of lava and glass-smooth molten flows of rought into unique jewels of exquisite beauty.
