Hello and welcome to my world! My name is Agnieszka and I am the owner and creator of Plumaria, a brand of handcrafted embroidered jewellery, inspired by nature, art and … night sky .
As many artists, I have always had a creative streak in me – as a child as used to make Christmas decorations and wreaths (long before it became fashionable), knitted crocheted and embroidered. I believe my Mum still has some of my embroidery pictures hidden in the depths of the basement! But somewhere along the way I abandoned my love for making and craft and got carried away by the current of everyday life. It all changed about ten years ago when the need to create became impossible to ignore. I dusted my needles and hooks and started again.
After years of experimenting I found my medium – embroidery, in various techniques which I like to explore and combine. I also found that while I am not interested (excessively) in fashion and trends, making jewellery is what I really love. Jewellery creates a beautiful space where art meets purpose and usefulness, where you can bring beauty and meaning into your everyday life.
Plumaria is the name I chose as it describes what I do so well. The meaning of Plumaria in Latin is: 1.- embroidered and 2. – embellished with feathers. I think the feathers will become clearer when you take a closer look at my jewellery 🙂
