Spring brings along a nouvelle vague of contemporary jewellery designers at AUTOR 9.

This spring edition forwards the new collection of the year 2013, created by contemporary jewellery authors.
(necklace by Kalina Chankova (Bulgaria)
Clarisse Bruynbroeck (necklace) represents Belgium at Autor 9. In the statement of her collection, she confessed that her original language is jewellery, as it represents the perfect tool of expressing her emotions. What is more, the materials she works with can change during wearing, so the jewel and the body can make a story of their own.
Neva Balnikova is from Bulgaria as well and likes telling stories through her jewellery, usually being inspired by her surrounding cultural space. She uses objects from everyday life or strange human beliefs as a support for her jewellery, experimenting with different materials, searching the best way of domesticating them into body adornments.

Inel inspirat de ciuperca Clathrus red al designerului Alina Carp (ring by Alina Carp). Materiale folosite: argint, rasina si pigment
Cornelia Brustureanu presents us the collection « Frozen Garden », which has its concept based on the image of a garden waiting for a sun beam to help it reborn after the long winter. For instance, the ring below is waiting for spring to take off the leather jacket which brought him shelter du ring wintertime.
Cristina Barsony presents us her first necklace from the collection Memories. The material she uses is paperporcelain, which has cellulose as its compound, which makes the jewellery more viable and wearable, no matter what the conditions are. Afterwards, all the elements are manually moulded out of the porcelain paste, resulting in this piece that reminds us of corals.
