2 bracelets are made of wood and nets that are used in the construction industry for polishing the walls before painting.  On the surface of wood are pins to presents the stars in the far away Universe. Their wearing is completely excluded because of the skin peeling of  hands, which gives them an in-applicability applied art. By name I referring to the fashion of hand-decoration, manicure, which is as black hole by invested money in beauty. That is an endless activity. The artistic creation of jewelry have results in crushed nails of artist, dehydrated hands with frequent cuts and burns as a result of work in  art studio with torch, tools and machines without a "glamour" as epithet. An addition to the theme of the in-applicability of applied art is the "manicure" of the hand painted in wall paint.

2 narukvice su napravljene od drveta i mrežice koja se u građevinarstvu upotrebljava za poliranje zidova prije bojanja. Na površini drveta su igle da simuliraju zvijezde u udaljenom Svemiru. Njihova nosivost je potpuno isključena jer se događa piling kože ruku što im daje karaker neprimjenjive primijenjene umjetnosti. Nazivom se referiram na modu ukrašavanja ruku, manikuru, koja kao crna rupa investiran novac u ljepotu troši u beskraj. Umjetnički stvoren nakit za posljedicu ima slomljene nokte autora, dehidrirane ruke sa čestim posjekotinama i opekotinama kao posljedicom rada u umjetničkom ateljeu sa plamenikom, alatima i strojevima koji nema epitet "glamur" . Dodatak temi neprimjenjivosti primijenjene umjetnosti je "manikura" ruke obojane zidnom bojom.

My left hand is my model for photo shooting jewelry, this time painted in white wall color. Dehydrated because of color looks a little dramatic. Trust me, I am not zombie, I am just ghost :)

Moja lijeva ruka je moj model za fotografiranje nakita, obaj put je obojana u bijelu zidnu boju. Dehidrirana od boje izgleda malo dramatično. Vjerujte mi, nisam zombi, ja sam duh :)

Thx to my dear friend Mario I have this photos from the exhibition of 52. Zagreb Salon in "Izidor Kršnjavi" Gallery. He made them for me because I live 250 km far away from Zagreb and exhibition. Thank you Mario :)

Zahvaljujući mom dragom prijatelju Mariu imam ove fotke sa postava izložbe 52. Zagrebačkog Salona u galeriji "Izidor Kršnjavi". Snimio ih je za mene jer živim 250 km daleko od Zagreba i izložbe, hvala Mario :)

ALCHEMY IN PROGRESS...or...how looks like work in my studio

This post  I write to show how looks like process of jewelry creation. Very often people are surprise when they visit me in studio and see many machines and tool what are characteristic for men work, not for gentle women hands.  This work is dirty and hard - small smithy. Enjoy a virtual tour!

Ovaj post pišem da pokažem kako izgleda proces stvaranja nakita u tehnikama koje radim. Ovo nije jednostavno spajanje gotovih elemenata. Često su ljudi iznenađeni kada me posjete u ateljeu i vide sve strojeve i alate koji su karakteristični za muške poslove, ne za nježne ženske ruke. Ovo je prljav i težak posao - mala kovačnica.
Uživajte u vitualnom razgledavanju!

all pieces are small so sometimes I drill the finger
svi dijelovi su mali, ponekad probušim i prst

when you work fast sometimes wire is still hot enough to burn the fingers...bthw...human flesh have smell like chicken ;))
kada se radi brzo ponekad žica bude još uvijek jako vruća pa se sprže prsti...tek da znate...pečeno ljudsko meso ima miris kao piletina ;))


sculptured ring in the middle of process, still dirty from fire. Look at him how he looks like in the shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/253674127/contemporary-mixed-metal-ring-coral?ref=shop_home_active_5
skulptorski oblikovan prsten još uvijek prljav od vatre i lotanja. Pogledajte ga u internet trgovini kako sada izgleda


they will be brooches...and they become brooches: 
ovo su budući broševi

my hand, I call this silver manicure and my studio is manicure room ;)). But now my hand looks beter, coconut oil is helpful
moja ruka. ovo zovem "srebrena manikura", a moj atelje je soba za manikuru ;)) sada mi ruke izgledaju bolje, kokosovo ulje je učinkovito.




sometimes I must paint my hand in white for photo shooting. This is how she looks like after washing :)
ponekad moram obojati ruku u bijelo za fotografiranje prstenja. Ovako mi ruka izgleda nakon što ju operem :)

naušnice - nisu završene
