Believing in a simple philosophy that ”small things make a big difference”, Aelita is creating jewellery that celebrates attention to details. Her inspiration comes from mark making that is discovered while she draws at a fast pace.
She believes that working without control of what is happening in front of her, gives a true image of her real feelings and emotions. By extracting shapes and textures in surrealist notion, she creates a delicate and tactile body of work that responds to her state of mind.
Aelita’s collection is purely personal and plays a role of a ‘visual diary’ of her daily life. One of the main and the most important techniques – crochet – is a lifelong love that has been brewing since she was a schoolgirl back at home. After a series of experiments, Aelita found her unique and contemporary way of treating this traditional process. After several processes of transforming the crochet elements, she creates jewellery that respects traditions as well as representing the artist’s sentiment.
Aelita invites the viewer to really look into the pieces, explore and feel them without a touch before putting them on their body.
