Julia Maria Künnap is a jewellery artist known for her contemporary approach to gem cutting and stone carving. For more than ten years she has used natural stones in her artwork, shaping them into touching pieces of jewellery that speak of time. The conceptual core of Künnap's artistic practice lies in the contradiction between the persistence of a stone and the disappearance of a moment.
