For me contemporary jewelry is the way to express myself, more than an adornment and not seperated from contemporary art. My inspiration comes from the cultural texture and the geography I live in. I experience the materials and production techniques by blending the contrasts. 

When I started to search the origin of the handicrafts, I found  that Kanavice (a kind of embroidery) points out a very significant gender inequality (problem) 

As a woman, I reinterpret the Kanavice Embroidery & stylized flowers (as a part of nature) and tell my story by using the transformed Kanavice Flowers made of recycled plastics.
