Our workshop has delivered the first bundle of shiny, new EAMBRANDIS Jewellery some weeks ago and so it was time to have our very first shooting. I have been very excited and also a little nervous for that day. But it turned out to be a fantastic shooting at the beautiful studio of my friend Julian Mullan who works as a photographer and graphic designer. Almira Avdyli was modeling the EAMBRANDIS Jewellery with great patience and commitment. I love her unique look, her huge green eyes and her hair, that is like thick, radiant copper. Almira usually works as stylist and make up artist(with crazy working times) and owns a very nice blog about fashion and things. Mahir Jahmal is a great and professional photographer (also great musician and number one Prince imitator) and i am very satisfied with the outcome. EAMBRANDIS Jewellery is constantly gaining style and charisma and there are many more shootings, postings and of course - pieces of jewellery to come!
As the day of my graduation from arts history approached, the thought about starting my own business and working as a jewellery designer, as i did before, became stronger as well. 2013 turned into 2014, I looked through my sketches and drafts of pieces of jewellery and the exciting idea of them coming alive settled in my mind. Since then i have been working and forging on prototypes, thinking, feeling and gathering everything together to build a brand around them. Just now a persistently hot summer in which i worked, took a cold shower every fourty minutes, kept on working, drank great amounts of bracing green tea, is turning into calm and golden autumn, my favorite season, and EAMBRANDIS is almost ready to be shown to the world. I'd like to capture this moment, that, what i hope, is the calm before the storm. Like back in the days, when i used to paint, i still find it at least as beautiful to look at the color swatches, at the brief drafts capturing not so brief ideas, at the creation in progress, as to look at the accomplished work that comprises it all.
