It’s an honor when one gets inspired by someone else, especially when it is by another artist. This has happened to me too… When I first met Agnes Kelemen, and saw her wonderful paintings, I got an insight into her mysterious world. She tells extraordinary stories, mainly portraying female figures, and somehow there is always some mystery left where everyone can find their own stories or secrets…

Seeing just one piece of her works was enough to fall in love with them, and this painting was titled “Silence”. I keep identifying her through this painting, and now I know why… Because she is the keeper of my secrets too…

 

Those who know my work, know that I name my jewellery after women who inspire me and also after some wonderful natural phenomena…

In fact, some may have been surprised by the lavender fragrance and small flowers in the box when they opened my package, and may have even wondered why they were next to my jewellery resembling the sea…

Well, there are two simple reasons… ☺

One is that the sea makes me feel calm and peaceful, and we know that lavender and its oil are also used for relaxation. I am one of its greatest fans in today’s frantic world. ☺

The other is a more personal reason why this wonderful flower became my loyal companion in my work and everyday life…

I want to commemorate a woman whom I simply cannot name a collection after, because she is in my every move and all my designs. She tried on all my creations and followed my plans for as long as she could, and does so still, but now only in my memories…

I want to pass on this love and happiness through my work and the accompanying lavenders which she was so fond of… And who wouldn’t get cheered up by these little flowers in SEra’s package? We are women after all, aren’t we? ?

Accept these little “Happiness Packages” from me with love.

Even at the time of the Inca kings, people attributed great importance to orchids. They built so called ‘Tika’ gardens that were very popular even back then. According to legends, the Inca king scattered orchids in front of a young girl in one of these gardens.

We wouldn’t think that Peru is home to more than 3000 species of orchids, and according to estimations, not even half of them have been discovered yet.

Travelling from the town of Cuzco to Machu Picchu by train, orchids can be seen everywhere. As the train passes through the rain-forest, orchids cling from the trees. (The view is the dream of an ‘orchid-hunter’)

Arriving to Machu Picchu, walking up the stairs of the shrine, we can see one of the biggest and most common orchids, the Sobralia dichtomat. There are also different kinds of orchids on the ground.

Only 6 kilometres separates the ruins of Winay Huayna and Machu Picchu, but it takes at least 3 to 6 hours to cover the distance, as it is so full of orchids to see!
The best time to see the most orchids in bloom in their natural habitat are the months of September, October and November.

All in all, besides Peru’s wonderful architectural and cultural heritage, there are great opportunities for the lovers of orchids too.

Many asked me where my logo and my great ‘Circle-mania’ come from.
For years, this concentric, almost endless motif was part of my life. It meant the eternal cycle, and also something else… Something I only understood when I arrived at Machu Picchu…

Leaving the hotel, I was walking down a small, cobble stoned street, when, I don’t even understand , at a tiny jewelry shop, this special piece grabbed my attention. Made out of colorful stones and shells, it enthralled me…

I spent five days in this fantastic place, but wherever I went, I saw this pattern returning…

Can someone guess what symbol I stumbled upon?

This is one of Peru’s most significant motifs, symbolizing Pachamama, or, better known, Mother Earth. This is the force where, according to the Peruvian’s beliefs, everything originates.

Naturally I managed to get hold of that pendant I saw the first day, to remind me of this special experience which I try to convey to you through my Circle line.

My love of semi precious stones is fairly recent and I can thank that mainly to the creative team surrounding me (you could have read about them in an earlier magazine article), and to my search of new raw materials for my jewelry.

From time to time I have favorites which I eagerly wear, be that my own piece or someone else’s work – special thanks to Artgem, for my wonderful Peruvian Amazonite and quality silver jewelry!

I use this amazing mineral in nearly all of my blue-toned jewelry, because its turquoise hue or greenish color makes it the other gemstone that reminds me of the see.
Which is the first one? Will let you know soon!

Which gemstones are your favorites, and why?

It’s nearly seven years since I’ve spent around 2 month in Peru… Smiling people, vibrant colors and amazing textiles, and forms everywhere…

Not to mention the culinary pleasures that are so important to me…

I saw Machu Picchu, its wonderful wildlife, the natives in their fantastically colorful clothing; I got an insight into their cuisine and their architectural wonders.

All those smiling faces, kind people inspired me to get out of the grey, dull every days and make jewelry that reflect this…

I would like to say thank you to my friends and colleagues in Peru for everything – for the wonderful memories and colors that inspired me!

I love you Peru!
(I love Peru, I love You Guys!)

Some of you would be really surprised if I told you how different my life was years ago, and that jewelry-making was the last thing on my mind…
During my travels, I got ‘sucked up’ in these ‘other worlds’ that left their marks in my mentality, attitude, and not least in my style and colors I use.

In the next few weeks, I would like to guide you to places that, with their beauty and culture, determined certain aspects of my life, and, as it turns out, my creative work, and my love of orchids.

So officially coming to the end of summer, let’s have a little adventure, or let’s even be a little nostalgic in summer adventures…

I wish you an amazing Sunday with these wonderfully colorful Dendrobium orchids!

(One of them is still available, but you have to ask it from me )

I find it difficult to describe the absolute feminine woman. I feel that the answer is quite complex, because we are all different.

 

I would like to quote one of my role models, Coco Chanel: ‘Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself’. We don’t have to pursue perfection all the time, we should just be ourselves!

I have to disillusion those who are waiting for a miracle from following the trends of leading fashion companies. Unfortunately I can’t agree with them…

Even if the colors and fabrics capture me too, I always aspire for individuality. Not every piece of clothing or hair color suits everyone, like the models on the photos.

We can be slim, or plump J, blonds, redheads, brunettes! It doesn’t matter! What matters, that we know what suits us and wear that!

We have to feel good in our skin, which I know is really hard, but we can always try, can’t we?

‘Fashion is what you are offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose’ (Lauren Hutton).

So even against all the influencing factors, the real Woman knows exactly what she wants!

Nevertheless, I love when someone is brave! It is no accident that I create statement jewelry! Dare to be brave, and get away from the everyday dullness, even if now you have to choose your clothes for your jewelry and not the other way around. 🙂

I needed something unique, something that is really me… Something, that has value even without the brand name, and helps me smile when I look into the mirror! 🙂

The little help from the accessories was important to bring forth that confident, feminine feeling.

I’m curious, that you, who read my posts, would perhaps find one among my pieces of jewelry that would make you feel like a real woman?

It’s an interesting statement from someone who was born and brought up in Hungary, isn’t it?

Still, this is how it is… I love nature, but not in the classical sense, because I don’t like gardening for hours on end or roaming the woods aimlessly.
But sitting by the ocean in the sand, collecting shells, and just watching how the see and the sky show off their different faces, listening to the crashing of the waves, the squawking of the seagulls, and smelling the salty fragrance of the air, counting the millions of hues the view gifts me with day after day, that is tranquility…

The wonderful life I aspire to in my soul and during the process of creation…

The thousand different shades of blue in my jewelry, well…
It’s up to you now what you think of them… 😉
