About

R&R - Forest Jewelry

We were always fascinated by jewelry. That’s only too natural, for it is an essential element of female image. Throughout centuries, jewelry carried complex meaning – it was considered protective and signified social status.

We are committed to regain the understanding of what jewelry meant in olden times.We carefully study mythology and history of ancient peoples. The symbolism and intrinsic value of each element help us re-establish the bond with the wild and uncover the depths of ancient culture in which traditions and lore were inseparable from daily life. Even without knowing exactly what meaning each element carried, we still can sense the living vibes of handmade jewelry. We think it matters greatly that jewelry used to be made only from natural materials; for our craft we pick wood of various types, pebbles, leaves and flower petals, ceramics, metal alloys.

We weave our own tales as well.We are artists, so our perception of the world is especially keen.

Real-life experience mingles with fantasy, and thus new stories emerge – stories for each and every of our items, their own histories, in fact. We picture our view of the world; thus our every creation has a distinct personality – for instance, our collection ‘Spirits’, hand-painted fantasy miniatures on semi-precious stones. We draw a detailed sketch of a spirit or creature first; after it is complete, we transfer it onto the stone. It is also crucial to sense whether this particular stone is in tune with the character, and how exactly the creature prefers to be painted so that it would feel right at home. We meticulously work on every tiniest image detail; only this way can we render it as if it were real. When the work is done, we give the stone a coat of jewelry resin to preserve the image from fading and wearing off – and adding a nice glossy finish and dimension.

For our jewelry series ‘Forest’ we collect the prettiest plants all over our beautiful sunny region. We always kindly ask faeire and forest guardians for permission to pick the plant we like, so as not to damage nature gratuitously. And often the small folk present us with gifts like snapped-off twigs or flowers. We take our findings home and keep them between pages of our favorite books so that they could dry properly. The books add to the spirit, too – they are tales of discovery, adventure, chivalry and passion ;) For each tiny petal or leaf we pick suitable accessory pieces and hand-paint unique water-color backdrops.

Every earring or ring or pendant is one-of-a-kind! Like two flowers or twigs are never completely alike, so are jewelry items – we don’t ever make duplicates to merely refill our stock.

We hope our craft helps people perceive the multi-faceted beauty of the world. And we hope that little spirits that abide in our jewelry items will bring their new owners good luck and joy!
