On the occasion of the group exhibition Ice Cream Crush* with jewellery created by ten Bulgarian designers presented at  Munich Jewellery Week 2017, we introduce you to the participants:

Silvia Chaneva

On the style of your work:

In order to express my aesthetic sense in making jewellery, I use simple geometric shapes and play with their movements and transformations. I try to achieve natural appearance and artistic spontaneity.


Share an aspect of your project you are particularly proud of:

An aspect that I’m proud with the presented collection “Free Chains” is that I have succeeded in transforming the jewellery piece as an object, which amplifies and underlies our free choice and individuality and inspires our imagination.

Preferred materials of work:

I use porcelain and rubber because of the chance to work with free shapes.

Favourite design object or concept jeweller:

Jewellery makers: Helen Britton and Dimitar Delchev.

Professional related expectations from Munich Jewellery Week 2017:

The event is an opportunity for professional meetings and new inspirations.
