Rólam / About

Stomfai, Krisztina
jewellery designer 

Artist statement
I love creating jewellery because it's so personal thing.
Usually I make rings, the most personal kind of jewellery, they keep touching the human body.
It's a big challenge to create a new and interesting ring and keep them comfortable.
The people whom wear my artworks hold a piece of my life.
