Intro
Izabella acquired a B.A. and a M.A. at the University of Art and Design in Cluj Napoca, Romania and completed the GJ3 Specialization courses at Alchimia, School of Contemporary Jewelry in Florence, Italy with professor Ruudt Peters. Now she is living and working in Vienna, Austria and is a member of Atelier Stossimhimmel, Vienna. 
I don't make jewelry to adorn or decorate, but to express my thoughts and feelings, to intrigue, provoke, annoy, delight, create some mixed feelings, sometimes tip toeing around it, other times going at it like a bomb. I put my objects in relation with the body, and together they create a shared identity, a piece of jewelry.

Here and now
Time, a dark thing in life, flying too fast or sliding too slow. I often wonder whether time is my friend or my enemy. I am always late, trying to postpone getting old, but always in a hurry to experience more of this life. Always tired, always on the road, running towards a sad finish-line: death, but permanently wanting to stop, get some sleep, smell the flowers and just breath. Sometimes, all I wish is for time to pass, so a new thing can happen, but when things are good, I try to hold on to a certain second for as long as I can. The present moment seams to be always slipping away. I am looking forward to the future and I am trapped in the past. Here and now are the only things we should experience, and yet, this is the most difficult thing to do. The present is a concept so difficult to truly understand, full of hope, a small spark of light in the darkness of time.

A love story
This is a love story as I remember it. It is about me being the spectator of a love story that has been going on for many years. When we remember things, they are fuzzy, inaccurate, not true sometimes and not in the chronological order. We mostly remember the feelings.
By using the remains of some inline-skates (rollerblades) he used, the old-fashioned, out of style, sweat and broken, I take advantage of all the material and emotional qualities they are giving me, extracting the value from the objects (skates) and refining then by changing their state, separating it into material and emotion. I dissected the memories of this love story by taking apart the skates, some of them violently, others with care. This way the pieces are dematerialized, put in another context and joined into a new object – a piece of jewelry. These pieces of jewelry are an accumulation of feelings, memories, years that have been left behind. There is no history, just a story. Read more about this series here

Innocent
The “Innocent” project gives me the chance to express an issue I am very much concerned with: the abuse against animals. The plastic toys are a way of representing an innocence that can only imply the horrible things that could / might have happened. I cut the animal toys the way butchers do, whilst others I melt in twisted positions, creating situations that I imagine they end up in. Read more about this series here

We become one
It’s dark and quiet, and deep and empty. Very shy, it shows itself for a second and then it’s gone again. It makes me very curious, I want to find out more. What is it, who is it, is it important? Sometimes it is less timid and lets me see it for a bit longer, not enough to satisfy my curiosity, but long enough to make me want more. The 2nd one comes out, the 3rd one, the 4th one and the 5th, but just for a second. My curiosity then becomes obsession and I try to remember and to figure out what it was about. Then I sink in and start to give it a shape, a material and to make it real. This way I can look at it for as long as I want. With a body, it is not shy or afraid anymore. We become one.
