“Jewellery design means the interpretation of today’s world to me, a sort of communication between the outside world and that of my own – making the invisible visible. Through my jewels I am contemplating the tangled variety of the universe. Heaps of emotions and thoughts pass through my mind through the impulses of the environment which I examine and turn them into objects.” Reka Lorincz
Reka Lorincz (Réka Lőrincz) has studied in Hungarian University of Craft and Design, has shown her works in various group and personal exhibitions around the world.
„I make objects that are intimate and meaningful to their owners. It is jewellery that adorns and also “talks” or sometimes “whispers”. I work in a language that is understood without words and the verbal explanation becomes.” Flora Vagi
Flora Vagi (Flóra Vági) has studied jewellery design in Alchimia contemporary jewellery school in Florence, Italy, as well as Royal College of Art in London, Great Britain. She has participated in group and personal exhibitions in many different countries.
