Grigore Mitrea: The woodrepublic rings were initially pieces of wood to small or faulted to become furniture. Scrap which was too valuable to become fire wood. The wood becomes hence becomes precious and searching for an interesting pattern within its fiber is just like the search of rare minerals or crystals.
Anamaria Dobras: My AQUA collection translates the energy of water to a functional context.
Wood Republic: the rings emerged from pieces of wood too small for furniture projects. The wooden fibre dictated the shape of the ring most of the times, and while looking for it, the wood becomes precious and the whole process becomes like a hunt for rare metals.
Iuliana Asoltanei: The materials used for collection "Undine" are natural, pearlescent, imitating the reflections of the water, whereas the mother-of-pearl, the pearls, and the vegetal elements used are from the aquatic world.
FashionMachine: Hence necklaceputs to good value the materials through the clarity of the composition dot-line. The dot, line and circle as basic elements, arranged in a setting, compose bi-dimensional drawings, which obtain a third dimension when they are worn.
