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.

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.

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! My jewelry creations represent the woman who has a multi-faceted personality, the fiery, free spirited and passionate, the one that makes the best of each day to come, the woman who dares to be herself and express her feelings and beliefs no matter what other people think.

Indulge yourself with vibrant, colorful and modern bohemian 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, from dainty and classy to bold and loud, you will find something that truly expresses your personal style.
