The fundamental inspiration for the new "Green" collection is the TREE - its laconic, yet abundant branches and intersecting lines are translated into airy springtime earrings, and splendid necklaces and bracelets.
The artist, Inita Straupe, about her collection: "During my childhood I enjoyed observing the silhouettes of trees against the sky. My grandfather was a scientist, a tree selector, which is why I was compelled to know the name of each tree I encountered. I drew tress, leaves – attempting to distinguish one from the other by identifying their particular characteristics. Later in life, when I immersed myself into graphic art, these silhouettes appeared in my ink creations, and I found myself attracted to tree images made by other artists. I consistently return to the natural world when creating jewelry. My mornings begin with a look at a tree near my window, the patterns found in the branches against the sky – this has inspired my new collection."
