AUTOR is about jewelry, designers (Romanian and international), but most importantly, it is about the visitors who are passionate about contemporary jewelry. We believe that before wearing a piece of jewelry, you first have to understand, feel and love it. Therefore, we decided to ask Autor Fair visitors to tell us about their interaction with contemporary jewelry and about its signification to them.

Anca: Necklace, Yujin Lee (Coreea de Sud)
‘Fantasy. I believe any jewelry should take you on the other side, to send you in another dimension. If not, then it is just a piece of metal.’

Viviane: Ring, Mona Vulpoiu
‘AUTOR is an event that makes my life more beautiful. I am coming from another city to this fair. I got on a bus, travelled for 4 hours and here I am. I chose this ring because it is beautiful, interesting and it resonates with my spirit. If I were a piece of jewelry, I would be a ring – a weird one.’

Carla:  Ring, Noha Nicolescu (România)
‘I am a fan of Autor fair. I am attending it since the very first edition and I am always purchasing jewelry which I show off not only in Romania, but also abroad. For me, a simple dress and a gorgeous piece of jewelry mean more than an expensive dress and no jewelry at all. I got this ring because I truly like nature, and this is a combination between wood and silver. And, in a way, it reminds me of childhood, but also about the preciousness of a family Christmas evening. If I were a piece of jewelry, I would be something made of nonprecious material, colourful and extravagant.’

Dana: Necklace, Yujin Lee (Coreea de Sud)
‘When I look at a necklace, the first word that comes to my mind is natural. Natural and pleasant to wear. This necklace is made out of light pinewood. I always purchase light jewelry, not necessarily precious, but to look good. I will wear this with a very simple blouse, both for day and evening outfits.’

Cristina: Brooch, Ana Filipa Bragança (Switzerland)
‘The jewelry I have purchased are Fabulous. They are particular and unique. I love jewelry and each piece that gets to your soul is a fabulous one. For me, Autor is an extraordinary event. I wear jewelry everyday – for a sober suit you could accessorize any kind of jewelry, however fancy it is.’

Raluca: Brooch, Raluca Buzura (România)
‘I came to visit Autor because I, too, am partly an artist. I am an architect. I came here because I appreciate the others’ work, because there is a ton of creativity around, a lot of good vibes, and because people from all around the world came to show us their recent work. I purchased this brooch because I like it a lot. I like the texture, the grit, the way the materials are combined. I will wear it proudly because it is a statement piece, which will hopefuly represent me. I would like to be a ring. A big ring, all alone on my hand; the only piece of jewelry that accompanies the lady who is wearing it.’

Magda: Necklace, Simeon Shomov (Bulgaria)
‘I came here out of curiosity, to see the jewelry. They are beautiful and different compared to those you find in the big shops. It is interesting, it is something else. I bought this necklace because it caught my attention. I like the symbolism, the way it was presented, and the designer provided me with great positive energy.’

Georgiana: Earrings, Cleopatra Cosulet (România)
‘I always come to Autor. Spring, autumn; I am looking forward to it every time. This fair makes me happy. I got this pair of earrings because I felt that they belong to me. I like jewelry so much, that I would like to be any piece. All of them are full of life. Every piece of jewelry has a story, therefore I treat them all according to it.’

Adrian: Cufflinks, Letizia Maggio (Italy)
‘A friend told me about Autor fair, so here I am. I find it very interesting. I did not leave empty handed; it is inspiring. I have other pairs of butterfly cufflinks and today I have completed my collection. If I were to be any piece of jewelry, I would be cufflinks, obviously!’

Adina: Necklace, Noha Nicolescu (România)
‘I came to visit this fair because I am passionate about contemporary jewelry. The event is beautiful, as always. I got this necklace because I enjoy the way Noha works, and I believe it fits me perfectly.’
