Modern Venus Collection From Daniela Groza

Daniela Groza, a graduate from Edinburgh College of Art, lets Fashion Finest take a look at her beautiful collection of jewellery entitled ‘Modern Venus’.

Daniella tells us all about her work saying; “My collection promotes female empowerment and is destined to be worn by strong personalities determined to inspire others. Jewellery is not just aesthetics. My objective is to address important social, moral, and even political issues happening around the world and design jewellery with strong visual impact, which people can relate to.”

This graduate collection from Daniella aims to promote inclusivity, highlighting the beauty of diversity and individuality within one’s body shape and skin tone, with the use of materials, and design shape. The work advocates inclusivity, equality and diversity, all the way from the materials used to the final design, creating bold ready to wear fashion statements.

Materials celebrate tone and colour through the use of different metals, including silver, gold, oxidised silver, 18 ct gold and red gold. The use of the Japanese Mokume-gane technique of blending and laminating different metal alloys to create marbled surfaces, illustrates the beauty of skin imperfections, and the hanger motif symbolises the rejection of society’s image of the “ideal woman” and instead offers the wider spectrum representing the female form: body parts with diverse proportions, lumps, bumps and stretch marks.

Tracing metals back to their natural source is a large part of the creation process behind this jewellery, and Daniella is committed to using recycled materials, from silver scrap collected through time, right across to reclaiming family heirlooms.

Danielle Groza’s work can be viewed in more detail through her website, or Instagram.

YOVA Jewellery Collection

yovaJEWELLERY 1

There is about a handful of things that I cannot get enough of, and pretty jewellery is top of that list. So as a girl does on a quiet night, browsing the world wide web, I stumbled upon YOVA Jewellery and #lovedit !!

Owner and designer Joanne Michulka started Yova Jewellery because she was unable to find jewellery pieces that she liked.

I was thinking to myself maybe I would design and make my own jewellery, because I always loved jewellery

The collection is made of titanium, and includes bracelets, earrings and leather bracelets. All the pieces are anti-allergic and is unique and beautiful designed.

 Yova Amber Sun @ €80.00

Each piece is very special to her and she is very reluctant to pick her favourites, because we all know that we are not supposed to have a favourite child. But she admits, that, “When it comes to the bracelets, my first love is the Titanium bracelets with gemstones, especially the Amber gemstones. Her chosen earrings are the Anodized titanium earrings as they come in different colors and shapes, and are easy to wear with a simple blue jeans and crisp white shirt or a sleek sexy LBD.
