It all started when…
I was looking for inspiration in places that I know best – home. The thing that always fascinated me there where machines and how they work. My dad has a huge collection of items from all the electronic devices and a lot of bits and pieces from various mechanisms. So it was the best place to start.
These earrings are made of up-cycled fan wings and turbines. In most cases when taken apart and out of the context they look nothing like their previously intended.
A lot of people are thinking that I make my pieces by 3D printing, however, none of my jewellery pieces are printed, they are raw material straight from electronics. Moreover, I just simply love the process of finding these components in the most unexpected place and adding them sentimental value and also the unpredictable nature of them. Hence the name of this collection ‘Ingenium’ Latin for innate or natural quality, a genius, an invention.
