Architectural forms in jewellery

  • • Atanas feels jewellery documents the time we live in
  • • His inspirations include architecture and film
  • • He combines contemporary design with Eastern European traditions

For Atanas Konstantinov, it was always clear that he would end up working in the applied arts. His first attempts were at the early age of ten when he gained experience in woodcarving. He then followed a logical path: high school training in the field of applied arts, majoring in metalwork, followed by an academy diploma in the same subject. A decisive moment in his jewellery making career and his approach to art and jewellery came when he encountered renowned Bulgarian designer Dimiter Delchev, head of the metalwork department at Sofia Art Academy. Now, Atanas works mainly with noble metals, but describes silver as the most precious material, because it allows him to easily convey his ideas.
