EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Lidia PUICA, an organic world of colours & shapes

Lidia Puica , un jour de « red envies« , comme on grapillerait une poignée de fruits rouges, de « red berries » …..

« Lidia Puica: ‘I like to have no limits in what I do« 

In 2009 Lidia Puica graduated from the Univestity of Decorative Arts and Design in Iasi (Romania) with specialization in Environmental Design, then she completed a Master at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), exploring the contemporary jewelry. After graduation in 2011, she was devoted to jewelry made of unconventional meterials, especially those crocheted. Lidia creates statement pieces with organic inspiration using free technique in crochet exploring shapes and volumes. In this way, the jewelry gets the value of an art object, being associated with some crocheted sculptures.

«  ​I’ve​ ​discovered​ ​textiles​ ​in​ ​my​ ​childhood​ ​and​ ​I’ve​ ​been​ ​fascinated​ ​by​ ​the​ ​combination​ ​of colors​ ​and​ ​shapes​ ​ever​ ​since.​ ​Through​ ​textiles,​ ​I’ve​ ​found​ ​that​ ​I​ ​can​ ​express​ ​my​ ​ideas and​ ​feelings.​ ​They​ ​allow​ ​me​ ​to​ ​create​ ​different​ ​shapes​ ​and​ ​textures,​ ​while​ ​offering​ ​the opportunity​ ​to​ ​discover​ ​and​ ​experiment​ ​with​ ​colors.​ ​I​ ​use​ ​crochet​ ​as​ ​my​ ​main​ ​technique and​ ​I​ ​play​ ​with​ ​it​ ​in​ ​absolute​ ​freedom​ ​without​ ​boundaries.​ ​The​ ​inspiration​ ​comes​ ​from nature.​When​ ​I​ ​say​ ​nature,​ ​I​ ​mean​ ​the​ ​shapes,​ ​colors,​ ​textures,​ ​rhythms,​ ​events,​ ​etc.
The​ ​natural​ ​world​ ​is​ ​an​ ​inexhaustible​ ​and​ ​unlimited​ ​inspiration,​ ​I​ ​think​ ​that’s​ ​the​ ​main reason​ ​I​ ​chose​ ​it.​ ​I​ ​also​ ​try​ ​to​ ​use​ ​natural​ ​materials​ ​as​ ​much​ ​as​ ​possible.​ ​I​ ​love​ ​wood, cotton,​ ​wool,​ ​stones​ ​and​ ​shells.​ ​Natural​ ​materials​ ​definitely​ ​give​ ​special​ ​value​ ​to​ ​jewelry. »

« Les bijoux que vous créez sont des pièces magnifiques et parfois imposantes qui transforment en un clin d’oeil une robe neutre en tenue somptueuse. …. Est-ce que le volume est un élément clé pour vous ?
Oui, le volume est clé dans mes créations. Leur volume donne à mes pièces l’aspect de sculptures à porter. Leur taille n’est pas trop imposante, j’essaye de les rendre facile à porter. Le but n’est pas de choquer mais d’impressionner les gens dans la rue tout en étant confortable. » (interview sur tricotine.com)

« I find it a wonderful thing to use traditional techniques or ‘grandmother hobbies’ to materialize new ideas. It seems the trend for handmade products is global, and Romania is no exception. In Cluj, I have made many friends who are passionate about crafting and managed to make beautiful collaborations with some of them. I have noticed that in Transylvania, the focus is on traditional techniques and materials, and that people are quite open to crafting. »
