I come from Gdansk, a port city in Poland by the Baltic Sea, which has an almost thousand year old amber making tradition. My family has been processing this beautiful stone for generations now. Our craftsmanship is well known. I’ve inherited these abilities from my father but most of all, he passed on to me the love for amber, which I use wholeheartedly in my work with this precious stone. Every rock delivers emotions and anticipation - similar to those felt by gold diggers – as to what is inside.
Attrition of the amber bark uncovers a multitude - diverse both in color and shape - of layers. These ancient sap formations inspire me to design pendants, shape sculptures, necklaces and determine the setting – delicate silver, natural thread or heavy modern metal. In my designs I use unique, totally natural shapes and colors of amber (Baltic amber has over 200 different hues); made not by man but mother nature that knows not the meaning of the word - copy. The originality and inimitability of my amber makes it popular both with fashionable customers and selective collectors. My intention is to expose this fascinating rock, that is amber to a larger public through our amazing collection and broaden the knowledge of it. My collection also consists of prehistoric insects trapped in amber, many of which species no longer exist and can only be seen here. This of course gave Steven Spielberg the idea for Jurassic Park. Some of my insect findings have been shown in natural history museums all over the world.
