Cleopatra Cosulet, one of the most talented Romanian contemporary jewelry artists will be the focus designer at the 2018 edition of AUTOR international fair. Her collection titled ““The World Inside” speaks about a dynamic and heterogeneous inner universe, with varied emotions and experiences, which reveals itself to the viewer with honesty and invite to reflection and interaction.
It is my fifth participation to AUTOR and every time I feel the emotion of meeting a special audience, with whom I can share personal feelings, born out of my relationship with the world and carried into the jewelry I create. It is a great joy to see them going into the hands of those who will choose and wear them, giving them a new life, making them part of their own journey
says Cleopatra Coșulet.
AUTOR platform created contexts. The international contemporary and art jewelry fair is the most important one, for the participating designers as well as for the public who has access to such a selection only once a year in Bucharest. We hope that for both, 5 and 6 May will be two days of delight and joy. Contemporary jewelry becomes alive when it is worn. See you at AUTOR! said Dan Pierșinaru, Director and founder of AUTOR - International Contemporary Jewelry Fair.

AUTOR Magazine, an independent publication printed on special paper and with creative graphics, which has reached its fifth issue, will also be launched in the wake of the fair. AUTOR Magazine #5 hosts a series of features dedicated to contemporary and art jewelry projects, created and developed by the designers themselves, thus making it an artistic initiative in itself. The magazine launch will take place at the AUTOR Magazine #5 Party on 25 April starting with 19:00, at HIII, a new space dedicated to creative projects and events, at 82 Popa Nan Street, Bucharest.
