Although I have started my career as a media psychologist in the corporate field, I always loved creating things and I would jump from one craft to the other since I can remember myself.

Making jewelry started as my personal psychotherapy, a way to clear my mind and relax, but proved to be my biggest passion in life so far. So big, that I actually decided to leave behind my corporate career, focus on jewelry making and try to make a living out of it. Crossing that line and following a totally new path has been a stressful decision but one that turned out as the most sincere way to embrace my true needs, my true passions and my true dreams. I am now happier than ever and very proud to have my creations featured in numerous boutiques around the world.

Making jewelry started as my personal psychotherapy, a way to clear my mind and relax, but proved to be my biggest passion in life so far. So big, that I actually decided to leave behind my corporate career, focus on jewelry making and try to make a living out of it. Crossing that line and following a totally new path has been a stressful decision but one that turned out as the most sincere way to embrace my true needs, my true passions and my true dreams. I am now happier than ever and very proud to have my creations featured in numerous boutiques around the world.

I relate with every piece I create, since it represents my feelings, my dreams, my ideas and the experiences I gather from my trips around the world. I love traveling! And I don't just love meeting new places and people (well... I do!!) but also adore the trip per se, the preparation, the whole process. I adore the feeling of belonging nowhere and everywhere, the sense of arriving and returning somewhere, the anticipation of all the above while reading a good book on the way. Sometimes I think of myself as a citizen of the world. Life after all is a trip isn't it?

Besides my travels pretty much anything might inspire me. I use all sorts of techniques and materials from precious metals and stones to fabrics and vintage or found objects. I embrace experimentation and constantly teach myself through trial and error. Sometimes my hands seem to have a mind on their own and take me to different creative paths. I manage to surprise myself quite often. But I enjoy every minute of the creative process!

My brand, Piece of ART by Gina S., celebrates color, uniqueness and style!
Indulge yourself with vibrant, colorful and modern jewelry creations, inspired by the latest fashion trends and my love for vivid shades, sparkling elements and playful combinations of materials. From contemporary jewelry pieces as crystal friendship bracelets, statement necklaces, chokers, colorful bangles, macrame bracelets, leather earrings to classic and dainty designs of sterling silver pendants, natural gemstone necklaces, vermeil earrings and semi-precious stone bracelets, you will find something that truly expresses your personal style.

My jewelry creations are quite versatile and appeal to a wide variety of unique customers with different tastes and styles. I constantly create different jewelry pieces. I know I change my style every once in a while depending on occasion or even my mood. Sometimes I wear dainty and elegant pieces, other times I like to go bold and loud, and that shows in the jewelry I create too. They represent the woman who wants to be bold, passionate, playful, romantic, the one that makes the best of each day to come, the woman who dares to be herself and express her feelings no matter what other people think.
