About Petra

WE3PETRE FOR WEBMY STATEMENT

I have always considered simple elements as the most Beautiful ones. My way of designing the jewellery, objects or a living space, has always been oriented towards the solution that appears simple and is easy to understand. I think simplicity creates Beauty which is a quality I appear to seek in life and in jewellery design.

At the moment I am working on the concept how to storage breath of beloved person into jewellery. What happens after some time to the breath – remains, disappears or is amended into something else? Is it the same as it is with human relations?
