AUTOR is a story imagined and built by passionate people, who inspire through courage and creativity. We want you to discover all the AUTOR people and let them stimulate you with their story and their creations.
When you are a child and everyone asks what you wish to become you answer without thinking about where you will get in life. In school I studied painting and fashion design. During university I started to create contemporary jewellery and learn techniques. I am fascinated by many things and I am trying to discover as much as I can. I wish to explore the most of contemporary jewellery and to learn and create.
What are the main concepts translated through your work?
The collection for AUTOR is called “MY Memento Mori”. Death and understanding human death always pushes us to create something that resists in time. “Don’t forget you are going to die” can lead us to higher results or to calm human ego that can get lost in its own pride – in this collection you can find the skull symbol and vegetal elements. These details cut in metal or present in stylised forms have the role of inducing someone that the only sure thing in life is that him too will die. But how do people individual react to this fact? Everyone will have a different opinion. The title says ”MY” – I can only present my view on the life and death meaning. Far from being a mere representation of death, the skulls have a joyful aspect and included in the pieces they do not seem scary. For me, death is a natural transition from what can be more stages of existence and this lax view is seen in the pieces. I am trying to tell the viewers not to look at it with fear, but to have a complete life, where this transition is natural.
What material would you like to get to work with but haven’t had the chance yet?
Metal is a material that has always made me vibrate and, at the same time, ceramics and glass fascinate me. Out of all existing materials and recent techniques, I wish to use 3D printed glass.
How would you describe the person wearing your jewellery?
It’s hard for me to have a clear image on the person wearing the jewellery I create. I don’t make nonconformist pieces, but they have a unique character, that does not fit everyone.I guess it would be a special person that does not stand out and is happy on his/her own.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
In time I have received many pieces of advice from wonderful people and that helped me in certain moments. It’s hard to choose a particular one, but what matters most is to continue trying even if it’s not perfect in the first place and to always learn new things.
If you were to be a piece of jewellery, what would you be?
Oh, I don’t know, but I think I would be a brooch.
