Queen of enamel

  • • For Marytė, enamel is a source of endless possibilities
  • • She constantly searches for something new in her jewellery
  • • Creativity is her way to express and share emotions

Marytė Dominaitė-Gurevičienė has been creating jewellery for more than four decades. After studying metal art and jewellery at Tallinn University of Art in Estonia, she returned to Lithuania and started making jewellery from gold, silver, amber and precious stones. She participated in and curated many exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad, but her greatest love is enamel. The enamel technique allowed the artist’s effervescing temperament to fully express herself and satisfy her desire for colour. One of the most sophisticated and oldest jewellery-making techniques, enamel work requires a lot of technical knowledge – and creative spontaneity – which the artist obeys unconditionally. She regularly participates in enamel art biennials, organises art symposiums, sits on the jury at international jewellery contests, as well as leads educational workshops on enamel art. She also participates in fashion shows and has created jewellery pieces for many celebrities.

A blizzard raged outside the window and a quiet woman decided to leave. Marytė Dominaitė made this enamel plaque look like a painting, where the contrast between the colourful woman’s figure and the white silvery background creates a unique atmosphere.

Rain of Words brooch

In this piece, it does not rain cats and dogs, it rains... words. Marytė Dominaitė represented a rain of words that can last a long time, causing a real flood, about which one can feel overwhelmed and flooded. This hot enamel brooch combines graphics with colourful shapes to create an ironic effect.

Rūta Kaklo Papuošalas necklace

This necklace was created for Miss Lithuania contestant Jurgita Jurkutė, representing Lithuania at the World Beauty Contest in China. The main motif is rue, a traditional Lithuanian plant that symbolises youth, chastity, integrity, and beauty. This plant is very important in traditional Lithuanian culture, inseparable from the concept of femininity. The rue was recreated by Marytė Dominaitė using Swarovski crystals.
