Markéta Kratochvílová, winner of the Czech Grand Design Awards – Jewellery Designer of the Year 2016 and Talent of the Year 2014, her work is dedicated to exploring the links between the form of objects and the body. She considers the relationship of body and jewelry an important partnership that presents the personality of the wearer as well as affects it. This artist is interested in the dark recesses of the primordial, the ambivalence of natural and artificial forms, the story of the hidden intimate self in contrast with provocatively expressive ornament. Her work returns to a clear, modernist expression and creates a system of elements that are already characteristic of her work.

All pieces are handmade by artist.
