Petya Madzharova Artist Statement: I was born on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria, but moved to the United States over a decade ago. My background is in science, but I have creative side. I am constantly looking for ways to nurture and explore different avenues. I started jewelry making about five years ago I mostly work with semi-precious stones and beads. My curiosity for new techniques lead me to take metalsmithing about two years ago. I adore the wonderful world of mixed metals!
Petya Madzharova’s Love of Jewelry
I love to design jewelry that is elegant and complimenting. My goal is to emphasize the feminine side to make women who wear my jewelry feel good. I want my jewelry to show the beauty of simplicity and minimalism. My inspiration comes from nature, the diversity of metals and stones, and many different cultures.
