Jewelry making has always been a pretty underestimated type of art. Compared to the number of people -men and women- who wear jewelry, the people who make them won’t be characterized as artists as easily as a painter or a photographer. This is unfair for those who make jewelry, since their skills are admirable and the way they treat materials to create unique forms is absolutely commenadable. Maybe we should start treating jewelry making as an equal to all the other forms of art and not exclude it from the art scene.
Monica is a professional ceramic artist, who graduated from Vilnius Art Academy in Lithuania.
This is one of her best creations, in my humble opinion.
Her passion for minimalism started in her adolescent years and continued through Art School.
Later, it was transferred to her professional work.
The colors she chooses are monochromatic and offer a sense of calmness and relaxation.
Just look at how elegant they are!
The clear geometrical shapes and lines make the minimalism of her designs even more noticeable.
Well, if that’s not creative, then I don’t know what is.
This is her first handmade jewelry creations.
She still tries to come up with new designs and colors to serve her minimalistic visions.
All her artworks are made from first class materials, including white clay, glazes, gold and silver.
And that’s what makes them even more unique.
The prices of her jewelry start from $28, with the most expensive being at $45, making it possible for everyone to afford them.
Seriously, what more can you ask for?
She is searching for inspiration in urban life and nature and experiments with how geometric forms combine with calm soft colours.
Doing an article about an artist whose work you admire is different than doing an article about an artist whose work you want to buy. This is one of the few instances that I feel like I really want to buy one of Monica’s handmade ceramic jewelry. As a geometric person myself, I love her shapes and choice of colors.
