Simona Kafková creates jewels for women with a strong opinion. Every piece is an unrepeatable original, handmade sophisticated solitaire underlining the individuality of its wearer. Even the material itself is inspiring becaue it´s cuttings and remains of eyeglasses frames, so-called cellulose acetate. The range of colours and structures similar to amber, glass, tortoiseshell, ivory or further products of nature represent a real treasure for every designer. Combining of various types and careful hand shaping has a result in unique visual effects leading to the situation that a ring, a necklace or a bracelet finds its wearer, not vice versa! Simona´s latest collection has been devoted to the integration of old garnet jewel fragments to her modern designs. In this way the present-day jewel can be a reminiscence of legacy of our ancestors and at the same time also a statement of respect to individuals and their life stories.
