SOUNDS OF SILENCE
The source of inspiration for SOUNDS OF SILENCE collection is Riga’s phenomenal Art Nouveau which, due to its unique splendour and diversity has been included in the UNESCO listing of cultural heritage sites.
One of the most beautiful secrets of Riga’s Art Nouveau is the so-called National Romanticism movement wherein the best architects of the time utilized world class trends as well the Latvians symbols of power, their ethnographic heritage, in the designs of their buildings.
That’s exactly what I want to do with my SOUNDS OF SILENCE collection.
To explore Latvian ethnographic heritage, one of the richest in Northern Europe from a new standpoint.
To build, construct contemporary jewellery by using this heritage in an entirely different dimension.
