Cleopatra Coșulet, one of the most talented Romanian contemporary jewelry artists was the Focus Artist at the 2018 edition of AUTOR – International Contemporary Jewelry Fair. Her collection titled “The World Inside” speaks about a dynamic and heterogeneous inner universe, with varied emotions and experiences, which reveals itself to the viewer with honesty and invite to reflection and interaction.
“It is my fifth participation to AUTOR and every time I feel the emotion of meeting a special audience, with whom I can share personal feelings, born out of my relationship with the world and carried into the jewelry I create. It is a great joy to see them going into the hands of those who will choose and wear them, giving them a new life, making them part of their own journey” says Cleopatra Coșulet.
