Angelina Tsvetkova’s jewelry creations crafted from oxidized metal are characterized by a captivating delicacy that stems from her fascination with metal fretwork. Her pieces’ formal idiom covers the entire gamut from organic shapes – slightly reminiscent of land and marine plants – to decorative symmetrical ornaments. The names of her small collections connote the inspiration and ideas behind the pieces concerned. “Nocturne in 925 represents my romantic nocturnal journey, engrossed by Chopin’s music,” says Tsvetkova. Inspired by George Gershwin’s eponymous song, the brooches of her The man I love collection represent an attempt to express our longing for passionate devotion. Her Up close series draws on the traditional aesthetics of Bulgarian handicrafts. All her pieces are playful and romantic creations that evoke emotions in us.
