Klara Sipkova

“I follow the idea that there is beauty in simplicity... During the jewellery making process I input my personal ingredients of beauty, clean lines, humour and opinion into each peace and combine it with functionality and precision of craftsmanship.
Obviously I try to look at each peace of jewellery unconventionally. For me it is not just a beautiful accessory made out of expensive materials, but a wearable piece of art which caries emotions and makes a statement. I like objects with a story and I am fascinated by the idea that each user will add many other stories to the one I input in each piece of my jewellery. This is what make each jewel absolutely unique.”

Even though most of Klara Sipkova's work is rather minimalistic and based on clear forms, she is no stranger to complex geometrical shapes. In her designs she often employs hi-tech production methods while other times she stays true to her background of precise handcraft. Stainless steel and titanium are her favourite materials however in several designs she does not refrain from material experimentation – she is the first jeweller who use the highly workable hi-tech Barrisol foil in jewellery application.
