Intro

Statement

I enjoy making jewellery, learning new skills and spending time exploring the world. Very often I question what interest me the most and realising that my circle is very broad. I can be inspired by a water droplet on a cobweb early in the morning or a sound that reaches my ears late in the evening.

Silver is the material that I enjoy working with the most for its frosty whiteness after firing or its shine after polishing. This material is associated with the roots and traditions of Latvia where I come from and where silver jewellery has been made and loved for centuries. In the work I create, I give metal life by playing with it to create movement in form and often setting a stone to compliment. Just the way the shining sun gives life to the Earth. However, lately something has made me to look into more contemporary way of making and wearing jewellery and explore other skills and trades. I have started to look into textiles skills and techniques and think about how to transfer them in to a contemporary, wearable, elegant, stylish and durable jewellery pieces and body adornments. ​


‘Wired’ is a collection that was inspired by movement in dance. When the dancer moves, the action creates invisible dimensions to human eye. These are just like invisible footprints that are created through each of our existence that we don’t think about.  As children we most probably create fuller and more inclined three dimensional forms through jumping, climbing, rolling etc. but as we get older, the forms for most of us probably turn into two dimensional.

 If we were able to attach an eternal cord to a dancer and let it wrap around the invisible space into a form as she moves through life, we could reveal mesmerising patterns and three dimensional forms.  Dance and the elegance in dancers’ movement and bodies has fascinated me since childhood and for this collection I had an opportunity to challenge myself and dig deeper and find what it is that intrigues me about dancers.

I started experimenting with folding different fabrics by mimicking the gorgeous folds a dancer’s dress creates but it wasn’t the right outcome. So I then tried wrapping nylon thread and that’s when I was enlightened and able to see beyond; somewhere that my mind has not travelled before. I could see threads folding and wrapping around each other, alongside and over. I made several forms that I displayed on the dancer’s body to be photographed and I observed her excitement and pride when holding these delicate, light but strong pieces of body adornments that are similar to the patterns she creates through her moves.

My collection is an attempt to give the viewer a chance to think about the patterns one leaves behind. Each of us is unique and so are our invisible movement dimensions.
