My name is Mirka Biel, the author of this site and the jewelry designs. How did this all start? I never used to wear jewelry. It is very hard to please my heart (especially with trinkets), so I started creating my own designs.
I get inspired by all sorts of streams and currents (literally and figuratively as well), so I have had this minimalist river necklace on my mind for a while now.
What triggered the idea? I like simple geometric shapes of jewelry, but I was missing something there. But why a river? Maybe it's because my grandmother has a house and garden near a river and I've used to spend all my childhood summers and weekends there. Maybe it's because I don't live in my hometown anymore and I wanted to have something personal to remind it.
My design is a process of constant development and searches for beauty.
