Gittit Szwarc's Profile
I have a long background in dance, martial arts and movement, and so to me, the most fascinating aspect of jewelry or apparel is the way it interacts with the human form. When creating a new piece I ask myself, how will it look to someone gazing at the wearer from an angle? How will it move when she moves? How does it relate to the natural lines of her face, neck, collarbone, torso?
My models are all contemporary dancers. I think people are more beautiful in motion.
In the past year or so, I've been focused on streamlining my life, letting go of possessions, habits and priorities that didn't fit (still love my shoes though). I feel this frame of mind is reflected in my latest collection as well: the lines are cleaner, every possible element that could be taken away has been taken away, to leave just "the essence of jewelry"…
