Ilka Bruse

My jewelry is like a dialogue with an inspiring partner.
Time and again it touches me in surprising ways, awakens my curiosity,
opens me up to new perspectives, delights me unexpectedly.

My jewelry gives birth to a smile, then the laughter comes and is quick to spread.
This is the magic of my art.My workbench is my favorite place. Here in this microcosm,
my jewelry grows slowly. With no exceptions, I make every piece by hand.

The jewelry is my language. It is living, vibrant, constantly in motion.
Through my jewelry, I give shape to my world.
This is how everything holds together.
