Petya Madzharova Jewelry Artist
I was born on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria, but moved to the US over a decade ago. Although I have a science background by education, I've always had a creative side and am constantly looking for ways to nurture and explore different avenues. I started making jewelry about 5 years ago, working mostly with semi-precious stones and beads, but my curiosity for new techniques lead me to take up metalsmithing about 2 years ago, and get introduced to the wonderful world of mixed metals!
I love to create jewelry designs that are elegant and complimenting, emphasizing the feminine side of every woman and making her stand out and feel unique when wearing them. I want my jewelry to show the beauty of simplicity and minimalism. My inspiration comes from nature, the diversity of metals and stones, and the different cultures I've been exposed to throughout the years.
