Rebel channelled into craft

  • • Marta creates unique jewellery by combining several traditional techniques
  • • Her works were exhibited at the National Museum in China
  • • She completed a state goldsmith training course

Since childhood, Marta Norenberg rebelled at anything traditional and experimented instead with handicrafts. After completing her studies in Art History in 2010, she undertook various activities to broaden her skills, including laying large-format glass mosaics, studying glass melting, learning the Tiffany-stained glass technique as well as completing a one-year-long goldsmith course. It was during the latter, studying with master Andrzej Bandkowski, that her love for silver jewellery really took hold, and which, in 2013, she turned into a business. Since then, she has been creating custom-made jewellery combining several of the techniques and skills that she has acquired. Her breakthrough project was a copper necklace made of felted merino wool, embossed and dyed leather then framed with precious stones. Marta finds inspiration from the richness of fauna and flora, as well as literature characters and fantasy creatures.

The pendant has the shape of a dome, with a red rose on one side and the Little Prince looking at the moon on the reverse. The bracelet has a convex pattern on the entire surface, and contains the most important scenes from the book. The silver was oxidated to give it a more antique look.

Barn owl

This necklace presents a barn owl in flight, made of sterling silver 925/999 and glass enamel. The owl was cut by hand from silver sheet and the feathers were made using a thin wire embedded in layers of noble enamel. The enamel colours of white, grey and brown were chosen to create a painterly effect.

Kingfisher pendant

This double-sided kingfisher medallion is made from 925 silver. A high relief figure of the bird is placed on the front and covered with oxidated silver, which gives it a steel-grey shade. Right behind the bird there are hand-cut waves of water and blue sky. A similar colour, with a bit of turquoise, was placed on the reverse decorated with waves made of thin wires. The pendant layers are connected with rivets.
