I created my first piece of jewelry in 2009. I keep it as a reminder of how much I improve every day.

5. WHAT IS INSPIREING YOU WITH YOUR CREATIVE WORK? FROME WHERE ARE YOU GETTING AN IDEAS?
I am inspired by materials shapes and colors I work with. I recycle vintage watches and I never know what treasure I will find inside an old broken watch. I get ideas and inspiration from everyday life.

6. DO YOU MAYBE HAVE YOUR ROLE MODEL? WHO AND WHY?
Leonardo Da Vinci. He was a great painter, sculptor, architect, musician, engineer, inventor, and scientist. Although holding a true gift in the area of art, he also held a strong mind in the area of science and invention. Da Vinci was way before his time.

Both. My work day lasts from morning till night.

9. WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART OF YOUR CREATING?
I don’t find any part of my creating hard because I really love and enjoy my work, but if I would have to pick something it would be resin casting. It is not hard but it is very delicate. As a finishing touch on a creation, there is no room for mistakes.
10. WHO ARE YOURS CUSTOMERS? DESCRIBE YOUR TIPICAL CUSTOMER.
My creations are suitable for everyone, genders, all ages and all styles. Our typical client is the client that can`t have only ONE piece of our jewelry.

11. DO YOU WISH YOUR PRODUCT WILL BE USED / WEARING BY SOME FAMOUS PERSON? WHO? AND WHY?
I don’t have a preference when it comes to celebrities. For me the most important thing is that the person that buys my jewelry will appreciate it and will take good care of it.

I wear my own creations and I like to wear creations from my colleagues as well. My sister that works with me is my number one fan and she has the most of Jazz Fashion jewelry of all.

My plan is to keep creating, participate at as many exhibitions as I can and make a lot more people happy with Jazz jewelry.
