My name is Iuliana and I create resin jewelry using natural elements: mushrooms, lichens, moss, dried flowers, leaves, shells, shells, sand and other microwonders. I live in the beautiful Romania, Transylvania, surrounded by mountains and grand forests. I always take care to gather the supplies in small quantities from different places, in order to protect the equilibrium of the ecosystem. I love nature and I believe that it’s important to take care of the world so that it can continue to take care of us.
I draw my inspiration from nature, but it’s the fleeting moments of perfection that I really strive to capture in every art piece. I rely heavily on a minimalist style using resin to showcase this natural beauty so that these little miracles can be cherished for years to come.
After carefully collecting the natural elements and drying some of them (flowers and petals), I suspend them in resin, always trying to recreate a different micro landscape. Once the resin has solidified, I sand it with a micro motor and add additional layers of resin to give the final piece a glossy shine. The mushrooms are incorporated into the jewelry the same day they were picked in order to preserve their beautiful color and shape.
