DRAGON

Myths and legends surround dragons, whether in Asia or Europe. In reality, they are everywhere. Ljubljana is also marked by the dragon. Dragons create the opportunity for us to immerse ourselves in other fantastic worlds They are friends and companions. I want their qualities, such as the power of luck, influence and wisdom, to be passed on to whoever puts on my jewellery. The collection of dragons is handmade in my workshop as one-offs using classic goldsmithing methods - from modelling to enamelling and everything in between. The materials were a challenge and a joy to create: from 18-carat gold, silver, titanium and precious stones, which mirror the charm of the dragons and accentuate the mystique of their mystique.
