My name is Agnieszka.
I was fascinated by jewellery and the art of jewellery making from a very young age but had never thought of taking it up professionally. Until I moved some years ago to the most beautiful part of the world, West Coast of Ireland, and here, in Killarney l decided to follow my creative nature and open my small workshop together with my husband. And this is how the journey in creating began…
Now I am living and working in the most beautiful place in Ireland and loving it more and more every day..
Killarney, being an integral part of the world famous Wild Atlantic Way is one of those places where the arts are vibrant and appreciated, and for me, has inspired a re-connection with my artistic side.
Every piece of my jewellery is entirely handmade and crafted in my studio.
“I hope that people wearing my jewellery will experience the same happiness as I do while creating it.”
My favourite technique that I mostly work with and enjoy is an ancient Georgian technique called Minankari, also known as Cloisonné. It is an art process in which the tiny grains of glass are applied and fired in raised cells on metal-pure silver or gold, background.
This firing process is repeated several times in a special kiln in the temperature as high as almost 800 degrees Celsius.
It is a laborious technique that cannot be mechanised. It requires a lot of work, time and patience, so the ready piece of jewellery becomes an art object.
Minankari with all its possibilities is so far my favourite medium where l can combine colour, metal and wonderful world of Celtic symbols like knots, swirls, spirals.
Possibilities are endless!
I also run a variety of jewellery making and enamelling workshops. Please check the website for more details or email us if you are interested in taking classes with me, or having me teach at your location.
