Yesterday I went for a random walk with my mother in Bucharest, and at Sala Dalles there was this contemporary art jewelry fair, where we made a stop. It was indeed a nice place to stop on a Sunday noon, as there were so many beauties to be discovered. Many of the pieces on display were unique pieces, so whoever bought something is sure to have a special piece of jewelry.
I am happy about such events, because we get to discover our own designers, people who put a lot of hard work combined with imagination and playfulness with technique - and the result is just amazing.
Some of the pieces that caught my eye were those by designer Raluca Buzura, a young and delicate woman whom I met there. I took some (not very good - sorry) pictures of them, but you can always check her website here. If you look at the pictures, you will probably think that the material used mainly is leather...but NO - it is ceramics! I was fascinated by how the designer described her work: cutting each piece, burning it, polishing it,...a long process which at the end is so worth it if you look at these amazing creations.
These are the moments when I know why I value craftsmanship so much. Because something beautiful as these necklaces comes out of craftsmanship.
