AN IDEA AS UNIQUE AS THE CITY ITSELF
Florence has always been an endless source of creative masterpieces and crafts, such as the works from Brunelleschi, Michelangelo and Da Vinci. Florenceis a world-renowned cradle of original hand-crafted jewelry since the middle ages. Today, Florence is one of the leading centers of contemporary jewelry. Damjan Popovac finds continual inspiration in this city.
ALCHIMIA, JEWELRY AS A LANGUAGE
Damjan mastered the art of contemporary jewelry making in Alchimia School, in Florence. The experience and expertise he acquired during his time there has strongly impacted his art. While refining his skills, he learned to liberate imagination, and to have a free reign over his wildest ideas. As his teacher, the late Manfred Bichop used to say, Jewelry is self-expression. The vision for BE UNIQUE is to create remarkable and outstanding jewelry with each piece telling its own story. The great passion for crafting is reflected in his Men's room collection, which he created at age 17. It is a set of very particular objects for men that enhance one's masculinity.
