STORY

 

Dorota Kos – a graduate from Gdańsk Academy of Fine Arts, academic diploma In sculpture faculty. Lives and creates in Gdańsk.The jewellery is manufactured at the outskirts of the city, by the seaside, where time passes at its own pace. Free of haste, fully concentrated on the act of creation. Each collection is characterized by high quality as all the components are hand-made of precious materials. Uniqueness of style is the effect of artist’s creativity. Eye-catching shapes and well-thought compositions make luxury and sophisticated jewellery. Variety of the offer includes wide range of eclectic compositions. Their beauty lies in simple, geometric forms which creates optimistic and passionate decorative collections. What combines modern minimalistic forms with decorative ones are plants. Plants fascinate the artist, penetrate her thoughts, imagination, philosophy. The texture of jewellery reminds in touch delicate petals and leaves of plants. Contact with them, their look, smell, touch, taste is incredibly sensual and relaxing experience. Sensual shapes are teamed with classic ones. Subtle surfaces remind the touch of petals. Freedom of choice given by the collection diversity. All these factors symbolize the essence of femininity and her romantic aspects of nature.
