MIRTA jewelry evolved from merging architectural design principles with traditional silversmithing techniques.
The collection redefines archetypal jewelry forms with a focus on clean technical detailing.
Each piece becomes a wearable miniature sculpture.
MIRTA was founded by Andrea Simic as a result of an ongoing material research developed during architectural studies.
Andrea is a Zagreb-based architect and designer. Hailing from a background in architecture at Zagreb Faculty of Architecture, as well as a year spent at Zagreb School of Design, she worked with various architects before falling into design. After making her first jewelry pieces, Andrea developed MIRTA in 2010 with the intention of merging strong concepts of architecture with the delicacy of jewelry.
I deeply appreciate natural materials. I also prefer to keep things simple.
Whether be making a gold/diamond ring or designing a wooden structure I feel an obligation to keep the design understated - to allow the natural beauty of the material to speak for itself. A designer can never compete with nature.
MIRTA jewelry is committed to environmental responsibility and ethical sourcing.
All jewelry is handcrafted in our Croatia, EU workshop with finest, mostly reclaimed precious metals (e.g. Ecogold), ethically sourced stones, and low-impact, low-tech, traditional silversmithing practices.
MIRTA jewelry was a finalist for Best accessories designer, Croatian ELLE style awards 2016.
