Among the town’s attractions is the 14th century Cathedral of John the Evangelist and the four-year-old Center of Contemporary Art. Poland is also home to featured jewelry designer Dominika Syczynska.
There is no doubt about it. Jewelry designers who create statement jewelry always bring a driving, forceful approach to their jewelry.
There is a clear aspect of play that I really enjoy and of course I like the idea of making a statement without saying a word.
Educated at Poland’s Jaigiellonia University and the Cracow School of Art and Fashion, Syczynska’s design approach is a vivid, imaginative take on contemporary art. Brass, copper and leather are twisted together, rolled up like fabric or matted like a bird’s nest.
Materials are compiled in askew and irregular ways that ultimately evolve into designs that are fabulously high-fashion.
Offsetting the irregular crepe paper-like
outlines of necklaces, drop earrings and cuff bracelets is vibrant color
schemes. There are greens, blues, rust
oranges, flecks of burgundy and brassy golds.
There is no lack of visual intrigue and unique presentation.
